Print, television, digital, and radio partners give big to local nonprofit organizations

Western New York’s tenth annual CreateAthon event is less than a week away and the generosity of our media partners has been astounding.

The only event of its kind in Buffalo Niagara, JFG is celebrating its tenth annual around-the-clock creative and design marathon. Each year, CreateAthon provides local nonprofit organizations with free advertising and marketing services. This year’s nonprofits will receive extra benefits in the way of low or no cost advertising and production services from the outpouring support of local media.

Thank you to our 2017 media partners.
