On June 13, 2018, 300 of New England’s top PR professionals gathered to honor industry leaders and most impressive campaigns. The Publicity Club of New England’s Bell Ringer Awards have been a symbol of outstanding achievement for New England public relations and communications professionals for half of a century. This year marked the 50th annual awards, and the milestone celebration took place at The State Room. Josh Brogadir, anchor and reporter for WCVB, Boston’s ABC affiliate, hosted the awards show. For this year’s charity recipient, Brogadir selected ALS Association, Massachusetts Chapter. The Publicity Club collected donations at the Bell Ringer Awards ceremony for ALS and matched the donation in honor of Brogadir. Winning work from more than 40 leading organizations and agencies was showcased during the Bell Ringer ceremony.
