Tomorrow, the PRSA Buffalo Niagara Chapter will honor the winners of its annual Excalibur Awards during a dinner ceremony at Salvatore’s in Depew. Created 20 years ago to celebrate and commemorate the successful programs, projects and people that strengthen Buffalo’s public relations profession, this year’s Excalibur Awards Program will award Carr Marketing Communications with a Gold Excalibur for our creation of the DVD Holy Name Province:  Love at Work.

Created on behalf of Holy Name Province — the largest community of Franciscan friars in the U.S. — the informational DVD will increase awareness of the Province and its diverse ministries as the first step toward launching a future capital campaign.

Despite many time and location challenges, the Province’s first-ever DVD was enthusiastically received by the entire friar community, was the subject of news articles reaching nearly 5,000,000 people and accounted for 43 percent of total unique visitors to the Province Web site.

Although we’ve won more than 40 Excalibur Awards in our firm’s 15-year history, we at Carr Marketing Communications couldn’t be more excited about our recent win. Congratulations to all of the bronze, silver and other gold Excalibur winners and a special congrats to our client John R. Koelmel, CEO of First Niagara, to be honored tomorrow as the 2009 Public Relations Executive of the Year!
