CreateAthon 2019 Recap

We’ve got ears, say cheers! This year’s theme was inspired by the groundbreaking innovator, Walt Disney, which helped energize our “Cast Members” to provide marketing services for five local nonprofits. Our office was transformed into a magical wonderland where the iconic Magic Kingdom was represented with fun and fanciful Disney decorations, Mickey-shaped food, and staff in creative costumes. Mickey, Minnie, and all their pals fully embraced the theme and helped make this the best CreateAthon to date. We are looking forward to seeing our efforts used in the community for years to come!
