Awards Celebration Thank-You!
PRC’s 2016 Awards Celebration was hugely successful and enjoyable event. We were excited to host the Celebration at the Villanova University Conference Center in beautiful Rador, Pennsylvania and to connect with our supporters, congratulate our honorees, and celebrate PRC’s accomplishments. The reception at the Montrose Mansion highlighted PRC’s hard work to protect Pennsylvania’s environment, educate residents across the state, and engage stakeholders and was kicked off with a wine & beer samplings reception of networking, raffles and a silent auction. The keynote speaker, Executive Deputy Secretary of the PA Department of Environmental Protection John Stefanko, gave exceptional remarks regarding current DEP projects as they apply to PRC and our mission.
Following excellent remarks by Stefanko, PRC was proud to present green awards to leaders and innovators in sustainability in Pennsylvania.
