Charleston, SC – Five Lowcountry nonprofit organizations have been chosen to be the beneficiaries of free marketing and advertising services provided by Trio Solutions (TRIO) in its eighth annual CreateAthon® event. The collaborative, 24-hour creative marathon will take place on Thursday, October 23 at TRIO's office in Mount Pleasant.
Trio received numerous applications from nonprofit agencies across the Lowcountry and narrowed it down to five local organizations including: Berkeley Citizens Inc., Engaging Creative Minds, ITN Charleston Trident, L.E.A.R.N. and Lowcountry Orphan Relief. The agency expects to produce between 10 to 15 creative projects for the chosen organizations with an estimated marketing value of more than $30,000.
"CreateAthon is an amazing event that aims to give back and further the mission of local nonprofits that may not be able to afford marketing services," says Caitlin Ramsey, TRIO's CreateAthon coordinator. "I am so proud that TRIO is the official Lowcountry agency for CreateAthon and that we're able to help these nonprofits who are doing such important work in our community."
CreateAthon® was originally created by RIGGS advertising agency out of Columbia, South Carolina in 1997. Since the program's expansion from a single market to an international effort in 2002, 85 agencies have joined the creative network, holding CreateAthon events in their cities. This effort has benefited more than 1,275 nonprofit organizations with approximately 3,200 projects valued at $16.1 million.
