Trumpet Award at the Publicity Club of Chicagoâ€™s 49th Annual Golden Trumpet Awards held May 9, 2008 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.
Blitz Group won the Silver Trumpet for distinguished achievement in public relations in the field of community relations for its creation of the RedHot Midnight Kiss fundraiser benefiting the Primo Center for Women and Children (PCWC), a 120-transitional shelter for women and children on the west side of Chicago.
The inaugural RedHot Midnight Kiss was held August 18, 2007 and featured Hollywoodâ€™s Carmen Electra.Â The event, held at Bon V nightclub, raised over $150,000 for Primo Center and featured Blitz Group LLC, Bon V, CS Magazine, Capri Capital Partners LLC, Dealmaker LLC, Harry Carayâ€™s Restaurant, NBC 5, Pagliuco Design, Prime Group, 10 Cane Rum and Tsuki Sushi as sponsors.
â€œThis is quite an honor for Blitz Group and our entire RedHot Midnight Kiss Host Committee that worked so hard to make our first year such a success,â€ said Trish Hoffman, Blitz Co-Founder and creator and chair of RedHot Midnight Kiss.Â â€œWe had top notch sponsors who believed in the cause from the very start, and that gave us a great springboard to raising money and awareness about the problem of homeless women and children, which is the fastest growing segment of the homeless population.â€
Nearly 500 public relations and communications professionals and their clients attended the awards ceremony, which annually honors distinguished individual achievement of public relations and other communications professionals. All awards entries were evaluated earlier this year by leading Chicago-area public relations executives, who selected â€œthe best of the best.â€
