The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum Wins 2022 Bernays Award from the Gold Coast PR Council for
Best Project by a Large Nonprofit Organization
(Boca Raton, FL – August 5, 2022) Mary Csar, Executive Director of The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum, received the 2022 Bernays Award from the Gold Coast PR Council (GCPRC) at a special luncheon held on July 20 at the Delray Beach Golf Club. The award was for Best Project by or on behalf of a Large Nonprofit Organization.
GCPRC’s 17th annual Bernays Awards Luncheon honored excellence in local public relations campaigns, marketing programs, and media coverage in 17 different categories. The award was presented to Csar by the luncheon’s emcee T.A. Walker, the TODAY at 5 Reporter at WPTV News 5.
The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum was specifically nominated for “History Alive!,” the dynamic $3 million reimagination, redesign and renovation it underwent before reopening in late 2021, now offering both permanent and changing exhibitions that appeal to families, students and research buffs of all ages.
Most importantly, from the moment The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum re-opened its doors to the public, it has been packed with both first-time and veteran visitors. Subsequent exhibitions and events have been quite popular, including BOCA BACCHANAL, Town Hall Tea Times on Food and Fashions of the 1970s, and a Rap Session with CP Group’s Angela Bianco on the future of BRiC (Boca Raton Innovation Campus).
Currently on exhibit at The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum:
Fifty Years of Collecting
Featuring artifacts and memorabilia that represent the wide range of items that make up the ever-growing historical collections of The Schmidt Boca Raton History Museum, the new temporary exhibition includes everything from Floy Mitchell’s flapper dress to a circa 2000 Votomatic voting machine. These items show the breadth of the Boca Raton Historical Society’s collections acquired over the past half-century and tell a story about how Boca Raton has grown and changed since its establishment as a farming village in the 1890s.
