Several area nonprofit organizations will have important creative work done for them free of charge during a 24-hour blitz early next year if they apply and are accepted to the first CreateAthon event in Columbus County.
The event will bring in talented graphic artists, as well as video and radio experts from around the region to produce printed materials, advertisements, public service announcements, short
videos and more for qualified charities.
Area organizers are joining the national CreateAthon group, which was founded by Riggs Partners of Columbia, S.C. around an idea developed over the past 16 years.
The concept has proven popular on both sides of the creative table. The nonprofits will receive much-needed materials to better promote themselves, the agencies get to serve their community with pro bono work in a timely manner, and the artists can network in an exciting, highly creative and pressure-packed environment.
In the first phase of this project, Columbus County nonprofits are invited to apply here by Dec. 12. Organizations selected for this project will be announced in early January.
This event is being organized by a committee of volunteers led by Jonathan Medford of Inspire Creative Studios, Sally Mann of the Columbus County Arts Council and Mark Gilchrist. More information is available at (910)640-0886.
