BBR Almost Doubles Awards, Celebrating Unprecedented Responses

BBR Creative is excited to announce the recipients of the 2022 CreateAthon, a 24-hour philanthropic event exclusively hosted by marketing and advertising industry leaders across the country. BBR is grateful to have received an unprecedented number of applications for their 3rd-annual event and decided to almost double their annual giving by moving forward with five “Do Good” organizations across the state.

“We are so pleased to be in a position to offer tailored marketing services to the amazing non-profits working tirelessly to support Louisianians every day. It’s certainly one of our favorite campaigns every year, and it’s certainly a testament to our 25 years in business, serving industries statewide and across the country,” says Emily Burke, BBR Vice President of Account Services and event Chair for CreateAthon.

CreateAthon is a national organization whose mission is to champion effective, nonprofit marketing through pro bono “creative marathons.” For 24 hours, the BBR team will cease all regular operations to focus their time and talents developing hundreds of marketing materials  for nonprofits in the community.
