SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Ocean Institute was named the recipient of the 2017 annual marketing services award by Forge54, according to a press release by the company.
In October, more than 100 volunteers will come together during a 54-hour weekend to create marketing collateral which will help the Institute spread their mission and expand their efforts.
Forge54 works to bring together a community of passionate and creative marketing professionals to serve nonprofit organizations, according to their statement.
“We are humbled and honored to be the recipient this year,” said Ocean Institute President and CEO Daniel Pingaro in a statement. “Forge54 will give us the opportunity to critically consider our messaging about who we are and what we do. We are excited to collaborate with professional marketers and find more ways to impact and transform the lives of children and parents in Orange County.”
The weekend event will be held from Oct. 6-8 at INNOCEAN USA in Huntington Beach.
