At the Public Relations Society of America Philadelphia Chapter’s annual Pepperpot Awards Dinner, held December 5 in Center City Philadelphia’s Arts Ballroom, LevLane Senior VP/Dir of Public Relations & Corporate Social Responsibility Scott Tattar was presented the Society’s DeAnn White Award for Excellence in Community Service, honoring the Philadelphia PRSA member who has best utilized his or her professional and personal expertise to further community service and volunteerism.
A 30-year public relations veteran, Tattar was instrumental, in 2007, in establishing LevLane’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practice, the Philadelphia region’s first. It has gone on to develop goodwill initiatives for clients including the Philadelphia Streets Dept., Taco Bell, the Fairmount Park Conservancy and others. Tattar is also a regular lecturer on the topic of CSR at Temple University and at the 4A’s Institute for Advanced Studies.
The PR team also walked away with two Pepperpot awards for their work with clients Beneficial Bank and the Fairmount Park Conservancy. The team received the Pepperpot in the Public Service category for the Beneficial School Challenge and the Pepperpot in the Development or Fundraising category for Fairmount Park Conservancy’s Hunting Park Revitalization Project.
