It’s been a couple of weeks since our launch of HAPPO (Help a PR Pro Out) and, after digging through 131 incredible blog posts we received just in Chicago, and sending them to potential employers, it’s time to draw the winners of some of the free giveaways our industry organizations have so kindly donated.

Before the giveaways, though, please note that potential employers may contact you directly. They likely will mention they received your blog post from HAPPO and would like to learn more. If you get a job, and know it germinated from this movement, please let us know so we can enter you in a drawing for additional donated items!

The winners of the donations from PRSA Chicago:

* A Chicago membership (worth $75)…Jill Sites!

* A free luncheon networking event (worth $45)…Burl Gregory!

The winner of the donation from IABC Chicago:

* Free admission to each of the lunches in March, April, May, and June…Jackie Lampugnano

The winner of the PCC donations:

* One free networking event…Dan Barbossa

* One free networking event…Kelly Eastwood

The winners of the MatchPoint donations:

* Ashley Lum (she found a job!)

* The other subscriptions will be awarded to the next four to get jobs in Chicago!

Winners, please contact me separately and I’ll get you the information you need for your prizes.
