When Tennessee voters overwhelmingly approved the sale of wine in retail food stores in 78 municipalities last November, they ended a seven-year quest to change outdated liquor laws, and made our state the 37th in the nation to give consumers an opportunity to buy wine where they shop for food.
MP&F Public Relations was fortunate to work with the Tennessee Grocers & Convenience Store Association (TGCSA) and retailers across the state for the entire effort, and brought to life the 30,000-plus-member Red White and Food coalition. MP&F recently received a Silver Anvil Award, a SABRE Award, and 14 Parthenon Awards, including the Best of Show designation, for the campaign.
Join PRSA on July 21 for an in-depth look at what made this once-in-a-lifetime project a winner.

PRSA NASHVILLE LAUNCHES SCHOLARSHIP ENDOWMENT FUND
The Nashville Chapter of Public Relations Society of America announced on December 12, 2012, the creation of the PRSA Nashville Scholarship Endowment Fund, established in testament to the chapter’s commitment to the future of public relations in Middle Tennessee.
The fund is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization connecting generosity with need, and will be permanently endowed, ensuring the chapter’s resources will be available to support deserving students in Middle Tennessee for years to come.
“PRSA Nashville has been privileged to provide an annual scholarship to students for more than a decade, and as the chapter continues to grow we wanted to strengthen our commitment to the next generation of communicators,” said Chapter President Todd Smith. “We are energized by the educational dreams that will be realized thanks to our endowment. This is a real milestone for public relations in Middle Tennessee.”
