On March 28, 2015, AAF-Orlando held their first ever Ad Help Day at Kre8 Media in Winter Park, FL to help Central Florida nonprofit organizations.

As public service chair, I had the opportunity to organize and facilitate the event that benefited 12 nonprofits. We ended up with 12 amazing ad industry volunteers who graciously donated their time to work with the nonprofits and the event went swimmingly! Below are some photos and projects from the event.
