The leading marketing, advertising and communications trade associations in the Triangle –AAF, AIGA, TIMA and Triangle AMA – held the 2nd Annual Merry Mingle Holiday Event on Tuesday, December 6. The networking and fundraising holiday party was a success!
Approximately 300 marketing, advertising, communications and PR professionals across the market attended this popular holiday event benefitting the Triangle Spokes Group, a locally based non-profit organization. The event generated over $3,000 which equates to approximately 43 new bikes and helmets for need-worthy children across the Triangle. This event helped the Triangle Spokes Group meet their goal of distributing 500 new bikes and helmets this holiday season.
“It is wonderful when members of the marketing/advertising community can come together to celebrate the season while benefiting an incredible organization like the Triangle Spokes Group”, said Merry Mingle Event Chair, Amber Frasketi. “We are so thankful to have been able to support such a worthy cause this year.”
A special thank you to our sponsors, Spy Raleigh, The Oxford, Brand Fuel, DocuSource, Sparktivity, Magnet Video, Fragment and the Carolina Ballet for helping make this event possible.
UPDATE: If anybody would like to help pass out bikes they are doing it next Monday – Wednesday. Just get in touch with Jen at Triangle Spokes Group.
