The FPRA Orlando Area Chapter hosts an annual scholarship fundraiser each spring for students studying communication, public relations, and related fields. This May, members came together with student scholarship recipients in order to raise money and celebrate the public relations field here in Central Florida. Once the business day had ended, East End Market flocked with FPRA fun, from food by La Femme Du Fromage to an amazing silent auction featuring items from Rifle Paper Co., Orlando City Soccer Club, and more. As members enjoyed the variety of food and drinks, students were able to network with public relations professionals, learn more about the organization, and mingle amongst each other as well.
After the fun (yet competitive) raffle took place, chapter president Alayna Curry, APR presented this year’s scholarship winners to all of the attendees. Congratulations to Tiffany Boodhoo, Noelle Cheaib, Megan DeMisa, Turner Elliot and Arlene Roque, for taking home well deserved scholarships! After this successful Sip & Savor, the FPRA Orlando Area Chapter is proud to announce that over $1,500 was raised for the Bob Davis Scholarship! Thank you again to all of those who attended, donated, and participated in making this year’s Sip & Savor a huge success.
