Hafenbrack Recognized at Annual PRism Awards

DAYTON, OH (April 17, 2009) - Hafenbrack Marketing received five awards at the 2009 Public Relations Society of America - Dayton Chapter PRism Awards. The PRism Awards recognize the creativity, planning and enthusiasm that go into implementing exceptional public relations initiatives.

The ADDY Awards is industry's largest competition, with a mission to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising. Conducted annually by the American Advertising Federation (AAF), the local level is the first tier in a national competition. The next level places local winners in one of 14 District competitions.
