Wheeling, W. Va.- Wheelhouse Creative, LLC, Wheeling’s newest full-service advertising agency, recently received a Crystal Award from the West Virginia Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA-WV Chapter) for their agency kick-off event, “In Our Wheelhouse.”
The event was designed to introduce the agency and its widespread capabilities to the community. The celebration was held on March 17 at the Wheeling Island Hotel, Casino and Racetrack. It saw more than 400 guests and was greatly lauded by the attendees.
Wheelhouse Creative was commended for their pre- and post-event initiatives, as well, which included a thoughtful social media campaign prior to the party and a unique “Message in a Bottle” mail piece that served as an extension of the kick-off’s theme afterwards.
Carrie Scanlon, Vice President of Brand Management, was thrilled to have received such a prestigious award.
“It is an immense honor to receive a Crystal Award for our efforts regarding the ‘In Our Wheelhouse’ kick-off event,” Scanlon said. “We strove to introduce ourselves in a big and memorable way and this award validates that we did just that.”
The category from which the occasion reigned supreme was entitled “Special Events Seven Days or Less – Business and Industry” and had a number of very worthy submissions from across the state of West Virginia.
Wheelhouse Creative team members were honored on June 17 at the Crystal Awards Gala at the Cultural Center in Charleston. The New Face of Creative joins an impressive roster of winners that have been accumulating since PRSA-WV Chapter’s inception in 1979.
