Cause Marketing Night
Each year Ad 2 San Diego takes on a nonprofit client in which they deliver a full scale marketing and advertising campaign at no cost to the client. Cause Marketing Night is an event to highlight these efforts, show off work that’s been done in years past, showcase the new nonprofit partner and to help educate the community on how they can incorporate social responsibility into their own organizations.
In 2011, Cause Marketing Night was a smashing success! Held at FIDM San Diego, one of the most prestigious fashion institutes in California, Ad 2 SD was able to raise critical funds to execute the marketing plan for local non-profit, My Girlfriend’s Closet. Attendees had the opportunity to meet the board of My Girlfriend’s closet and were treated to a presentation by guest speaker Brian P. Hawkins about cause related marketing.
This Year’s Event
Cause Marketing Night 2012 will include drinks, appetizers, speakers and an auction of artwork. The auction will feature 35 – 50 original artworks created by top local professionals and will help to raise money for this year’s chosen non-profit and the campaign’s promotional efforts by Ad 2 San Diego.
Be sure to arrive early! Happy hour lasts until 7pm with food and drink specials. Check back next week to see which local non-profit will benefit.
