RE: Alcohol Awareness Event
The following proposal details the outline of the “Psychedelic Trip”, the means of transportation for students from Lakeshore campus to North Campus in regards to the alcohol awareness event scheduled for April 15, 2010.
The event planning class within Humber College’s post-graduate certificate program in Public Relations is pleased to present a proposal in support of Humber’s annual alcohol awareness day.
We will provide project management and event execution in order to educate students, faculty and staff on how to have a safe and healthy summer. The public relations students are highly enthusiastic about hosting a “cottage getaway” themed event and look forward to your feedback regarding our initial ideas.
Thank you for providing us with this excellent learning opportunity. We are confident that we can create a positive, fun and educational event. The excitement is building and we anticipate a very successful event. Sincerely,
Public Relations Certificate Students Event Planning and Management PRC 140
