The Lee’s Summit Chamber has added two more pieces of hardware to its collection, as it was awarded two Philly Awards at the Nonprofit Connect 2018 Philly Awards banquet on November 13 at Boulevard Brewing Company.

Director of Communications Stephanie Kusek and Advertising Manager Heather Thompson accepted the awards.

The quarterly Catalyst magazine was presented with a Silver Philly Award, while the 2018 Gala Royale invitation also received a Silver Philly. This annual Nonprofit Connect event recognizes outstanding marketing and communications pieces, and had over 160 entries from more than 90 area nonprofits.

This is the second Philly for Catalyst – a magazine that has featured dozens of Lee’s Summit-area businesses, profiled many CEOs and business owners and offers cutting-edge photography and creativity while delivering a consistent and powerful message of doing business in Lee’s Summit. The award was given to Catalyst in the “Print/Electronic Magazine” category for nonprofits under $3 million in income.

“The Philly Awards are a well-deserved recognition of the talent and care that go into creating the publications,” said Chamber President Blake Fry.

Catalyst is produced quarterly by the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce. It is planned, collaborated and executed by the Chamber’s creative team, including Stephanie Kusek, director of communications, Heather Thompson, advertising account manager and Jordan Straits, creative coordinator.

In addition to the two Philly Awards, the Chamber also received the Chamber of Commerce Executives of Missouri (CCEM) Award of Excellence in September for Catalyst.
