The Pepperpot Awards

The Pepperpot Awards have become a long-standing tradition for Philadelphia-area PR professionals to join together in recognizing the top PR campaigns, tactics and professionals. In 2018, we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the awards program.

Enjoy networking with peers, hors d’oeuvre and a champagne toast and dessert to celebrate!
