In an effort to give back to an industry that has helped Stevens & Tate Marketing/Endora Digital Solutions in Lombard thrive during difficult times, the agency is planning to donate $30,000 in marketing services to one travel and tourism-based not-for-profit organization. The program called the "Lend-A-Hand Marketing Giveaway" was launched this fall and is intended to be an annual pro-bono initiative for Stevens & Tate. "Time and again we have offered pro-bono services, allowing us to infuse our shop with meaningful work," said Dan Gartlan, president of S & T.k Gartlan said the winning candidate will be one that "not only demonstrates strong leadership skills in its industry and the region it serves, but one we feel could benefit most from our services and has the best potential to implement the final creative project.
Entries must be received by Nov. 27. A judging panel comprised of Stevens & Tate directors will review all applications in late November. Finalists will be selected, notified and interviewed in mid-December, and the winner announced the week of Dec. 18. Candidates are being asked to fill out a short online form at www.stevens-tate.com/lendahand.
