Mount Pleasant, South Carolina-based marketing communications firm Trio Solutions is calling for entries from area nonprofit organizations for the ninth annual CreateAthon, which is set for Oct. 22.
The 24-hour event begins at 8 a.m. During this time, Trio staff will make free marketing services available to five nonprofits.
“CreateAthon gives our team a chance each year to give back to our community and make a difference to those organizations in our community who give of themselves all year long,” Caitlin Ramsey, Trio’s CreateAthon coordinator, said. “Many nonprofits struggle for essential business-related funding and money for marketing is -- often mistakenly -- the first to be overlooked. We’re excited to offer our services and lend a helping hand to these organizations.”
CreateAthon was launched in 1997 as a project of Columbia-based advertising agency RIGGS.
Applications can be submitted online at trio-solutions.com/createathon. The application deadline is 5 p.m. Aug. 14, and winners will be announced in September. For more information, call Ramsey at 843-216-0442.
