Giant Cigarette Installation in Dilworth Park Postponed
GlaxoSmithKline has postponed an event where it would erect a 20-foot tall cigarette in Dilworth Park.
An email from a PR representative from the drugmaker today says the event — meant to help Philadelphians quit smoking with the help of two of GSK’s smoking cessation drugs — will be held sometime in 2015.
I’ll even share the PR company’s email.
With an adult smoking rate of 25 percent – the highest of the 10 largest U.S. Cities – GSKCH [Consumer Healthcare] is committed to helping one of its hometowns become a healthier place to live and work. Smokers interested in jumpstarting their quit attempt can access helpful information and connect with other smokers interested in quitting at Quit.com.
A spokeswoman says the postponement is due to “unforeseen scheduling conflicts.”
