PRSSA-UD hopes to surpass totals raised last semester and funds raised will go toward PRSSA’s 2014 National Conference in Washington, D.C., set in October.

“PRSSA-UD's ‘Perfect Pitch’ fundraiser is so important to the growth of our organization and our members,” said Jamie Lawlor, PRSSA president. “The money raised will go toward sending a group of our members to National Conference, where students participate in professional development workshops, networking and so much more.
