54th Bell Ringer Awards – In-Person June 16, 2022

The Bells are Back!
Join us June 16th to Honor the Outstanding Achievements by New England Public Relations, Marketing and Communications Professionals

We are delighted to announce that the PR Cub will host the 54th Bell Ringer Awards ceremony on June 16, 2022, at the Royal Sonesta Boston from 6-10 p.m. Returning to an in-person event after two years of virtual ceremonies, the annual event will celebrate the work of public relations, marketing, and communications professionals from across New England. Additionally, the winners of the Striker and Ringer professional awards, along with the John J. Molloy Crystal Bell for lifetime achievement, will be announced. This year, the event will feature a new format that maximizes networking time for attendees to meet and celebrate together. 

In response to previous in-person attendee feedback, the PR Club is swapping the traditional sit-down dinner for a more festive and less formal happy hour style gathering. It will then transition to a sit-down award ceremony, followed by coffee, dessert and more networking. 

Ticket sales are now open and can be purchased here. The deadline for purchase is 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, June 10, 2022. Ticket prices are as follows: 

  • PR Club Member: $100
  • Non-Member: $120
  • Student: $50
  • Discounts available for larger-group purchases 

The host for the 54th annual Bell Ringer Awards Ceremony will be Brianna Borghi, on-air reporter for NBC5 in Burlington, VT. Brianna previously worked for NBC’s Today Show and took part in the prestigious NBCUniversival’s Page Program. As part of its annual Bell Ringers celebration, the PR Club will collect donations during the awards ceremony and match the donation to Borghi’s selected nonprofit organization, Dress for Success Boston. This organization helps women break out of poverty and become financially independent by providing them with professional attire to instill confidence within and help secure employment. 

“The Bell Ringers mean so much to the industry professionals in the area and we are thrilled we can finally celebrate everyone in-person again,” said Amanda Fountain, PR Club president, and Digital Engagement Lead at LEGO Education. “We are surrounded by incredibly hard working and talented people from industry newcomers to seasoned veterans, which is why this event means so much to our organization and the region. Congratulations to our finalists, and we look forward to toasting to you all on June 16.”
