Northeastern Pennsylvania non-profit organizations will be the beneficiaries of free marketing and creative services provided by a growing team of creative services volunteers in the 10th annual NEPA CreateAthon, held on October 27. Bullzeye Design will be participating this year, working on website redesign project for the Alice C. Wiltsie Performing Arts Center (wiltsiecenter.org) in Hazleton, PA.

CreateAthon is a 24-hour, work-around the clock creative blitz during which marketing, advertising and public relations firms provide nonprofit marketing services on a pro bono basis. Since the program’s creation by Riggs Partners in 1998, 73 agencies have participated in the CreateAthon network, holding CreateAthon events in their respective markets. It’s an effort that has impacted more than 1,100 non-profit organizations, delivering 2,500 projects valued at more than $11 million.

Just as importantly, CreateAthon has impacted the lives of creative professionals far and wide. Just ask anyone who has lost a night’s sleep to CreateAthon. They’ll tell you they’ve gained much more than what they lost in 8 hours.

Stay tuned for updates on the redesign, and visit nepacat.org for more information on how to support this cause.
