We Won! Komen Orange County Wins Nonprofit IT CreativITy Award

As Breast Cancer Awareness Month kicks off, we’re proud to announce that we have been honored with a Nonprofit IT CreativITy Award from GroundWork group Orange County, for our work using innovation and technology to achieve our mission of serving women and men and saving lives. This is our first award from GroundWork group Orange County, in the Community Engagement category, for our 2012 holiday jingle campaign, along with other technological advances we’ve implemented to achieve our mission.

Komen Orange County values its ability to provide vital breast health services to under-served and under-insured people in the community. That’s why it’s crucial for us to raise funds and awareness for the importance of early detection and screening.  Last year, we tapped our PR agency, HKA Marketing Communications, to develop a creative year-end appeal asking the public to donate funds for life-saving mammograms. The result was a catchy tune and video that helped us bring together familiar faces to make a big impact in our community. We’re also gearing up for our second Komen holiday jingle, featuring a new song and fresh faces, so be sure to stay tuned!

We’re grateful for the continued support we receive from our community, which makes all the diagnostic and treatment programs we are able to fund possible express our gratitude for making the 2012 jingle an award-winning success!
