The Envelope, Please

PR firm Campbell & Co. snagged this year's Thoth Award from the PRSA National Capital Chapter. The award, named for the Egyptian God of communications, went to the Alexandria, Va.-based firm for a campaign to prevent the spread of HIV among African-Americans. Mike McCurry, who seems to be this year's PR poster boy, was the keynote at the June 23 awards bash. Each year, the Thoth recognizes the premiere PR firms in the Washington metro area for outstanding achievement. (Campbell & Co., 703/759-5126; PRSA NCC, 703/691-9212)
