    We will kick-off the 2021-22 program year in-person together at Positano Coast in Old City, learning from the prolific freelance reporter (and ice cream expert) Regan Fletcher Stephens. Regan writes articles about travel, business, and lifestyle topics for Food and Wine, People Magazine, Fortune, Philadelphia Magazine, and the Strategist, and she has placed articles with Vogue, and Esquire - just to name a few!

    While Regan is often known for her joyful articles about food, beautiful vacation spots, and dessert treats, she also opens our hearts and minds to issues impacting the restaurant and travel industry - from new restaurant models during COVID-19, menu design trends, and important facts about tipping.

    Join us for an interview-style session with Regan, with time for questions from the audience and networking. Thank you to Aversa PR & Events and Positano Coast for making this event possible!

    One drink and light appetizers included.

    On Tuesday, October 12, PPRA will officially induct Cari Feiler Bender, President of Relief Communications, LLC, into the organization’s Hall of Fame. A luncheon will be held in her honor at Franklin’s View at Franklin Square, 200 North 6th Street, Philadelphia.

    Feiler Bender joins an elite group of public relations practitioners in the PPRA Hall of Fame, which spotlights accomplishments that have brought honor and recognition to the profession, industry, and community. Induction into the Hall of Fame is the Philadelphia region’s most prestigious acknowledgement of a public relations professional for his or her superior contributions to the public relations industry, the community, and PPRA –the oldest and largest PR association in the country.

    The October 12 ceremony marks a joyous milestone for PPRA as this Hall of Fame Induction had been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    As the head of Relief Communications, Feiler Bender specializes in public relations and communications services for non-profit organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region.

    She has 25 years of experience in conceptualizing, managing, and implementing projects for clients such as Historic Philadelphia, Inc.; Mural Arts Philadelphia; AIDS Fund; Fairmount Park Conservancy; Rebuilding Together Philadelphia; and Prevention Point Philadelphia.

    A native of Savannah, Georgia, Feiler Bender holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2017, she received the “40 in 40” Award from WOMEN’S WAY. Current and past community service includes serving on the Boards of or as a volunteer with InterAct Theatre Company, Philadelphia Cultural Fund and The Wardrobe (formerly Career Wardrobe).
