CreateAthon 2020 Recap

What better way to get down for 24-hours than creating pro bono marketing materials for five incredible nonprofit organizations? The inspiration behind our 14th annual CreateAthon was disco and we brought the funk to the TRIO offices on October 29. Disco balls, a glow in the dark dance floor and many other funky accents helped bring the disco fever to the TRIO offices during our socially distanced creative blitz. Despite all odds, we were able to come together to create marketing magic for Lowcountry nonprofits. Can you dig it?!

All in a good night’s work.
