Louisville, KY, December 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Three Seven Marketing Group, a sales and marketing firm located in Louisville, KY, gathered together with members of the community to raise money for charity. The team took to the streets to help raise awareness for The Autism Society of America and in the process, raised $500 for the cause.
Three Seven Marketing Group, founded in November 2009, is a sales and marketing firm that specializes in business client acquisition and retention. The company is hired by national service providers to represent their brand name to existing as well as prospective business account holders.
Three Seven Marketing Group’s main client is the leading mail order retailer of business supplies in the United States. The client has been in business for over 50 years and began working with Three Seven Marketing Group in 2010. Currently, with two locations in the organization, Three Seven Marketing is now in charge of gaining and retaining over 300 business accounts for their client each month.
The Autism Society of America is noted as the nation’s leading grassroots autism organization. The non-profit organization helps raise public awareness about the issues faced by people affected by autism as well as provides the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy. The Autism Society was founded in 1965 by Dr. Bernard Rimland, Dr. Ruth Sullivan and several other parents of children with autism.
Members of Three Seven Marketing Group ventured into the community with the goal of raising money and awareness for The Autism Society of America. They connected with members of the community and were able to raise a total of $455. Since the team’s goal was to raise $500, the president of the company personally donated the remaining amount to help the company reach its goal.
“We are not a non-profit company and our clients are not charity groups but the culture we have in our company is one where we want to do more than just grow our business and advance in our careers. It is important that we give back to the community. I am proud to have a team of people that work with such a devoted group of individuals who have the same values. It contributes to the caring culture we have in the company and I am excited to see the impact continue to evolve as we grow,” explains Tara Masia, President at Three Seven Marketing Group.
Masia rewarded the team that raised the most money. All profits were donated directly to the Autism Society. Afterwards, Makers Mark Lounge provided the team with the VIP Lounge for their hard work.
Masia and members of the team at Three Seven Marketing Group are no strangers to philanthropy. The company has done several charity events since the company’s inception in 2009. The foundations affected by Three Seven Marketing Group’s volunteer work include The American Cancer Society, Relay For Life, The Lupus Alliance of America and Operation Smile. The company plans to continue making an impact on the community as it continues to expand in the next twenty-four months.
