Tucson Advertising Hall of Achievement Honorees Announced

Tucson Advertising Federation Educational Foundation (TAFEF) and American Advertising Federation Tucson (AAF Tucson) have announced that Steve Lynn, Chris Mooney and Balfour Walker will be inducted into the Tucson Advertising Hall of Fame on Thursday, September 7, 2017. Nickolas Duarte has been selected to receive the 2017 Next Generation Award. Doug Myers and Lisa Hilton will be recognized with the AAF Silver Medal Award. All presentations will be made at the same event.

The Advertising Hall of Fame seeks to recognize the very best among Southern Arizona marketing and advertising professionals who have led, mentored and inspired others to succeed in this industry, while preserving the legacy of our past and promise of our future through the next generation.

The Next Generation Award, founded in 2014, recognizes those outstanding advertising individuals, age 40 and younger, who are making a significant impact on the industry through their leadership, career achievements, community contributions and inspiration to others to excel.

The Silver Medal Award program was established by the American Advertising Federation (AAF) in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, local advertising federations bestow this honor upon outstanding leaders in their communities.

The Hall of Fame Awards event will take place on September 7 at Hacienda del Sol in the Casa Luna Ballroom, 5505 N. Hacienda Del Sol Rd from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and is open to the public.  For additional information on this year’s inductees and tickets, please visit http://aaftucson.org/meetinginfo.php?id=133&ts=1494271945.
