As it turns out, all of the blood, sweat and tears (and late nights drinking Miller Chill) paid off! Out of over 400 entries, we were chosen as the silver award winner in the Vehicle Design category for our local Seattle ADDY awards. So, our entries will head to Spokane next week to be judged for regionals. The awards show was last Friday, and it was a blast. Seattle does some really creative work! We were honored to be there, humbled with our single award amidst some giant agencies taking home armfuls.Pacific Northwest Ballet and GoMobile Advertising collected canned food and over $600 in cash donations at the Macy’s Holiday Parade for Northwest Harvest.

The economy may be suffering, but American shoppers are still finding room in their hearts and their wallets to donate to a good cause this holiday season.  With 35% more families visiting food banks this year, the call for donations has never been more urgent, and Seattle shoppers helped answer that call during the Macy’s Holiday Parade on November 28th.

Throughout the day, Pacific Northwest Ballet, GoMobile Advertising and event staff donated by AC Model and Talent raised over $600 in cash donations through their “Feed the Nutcracker, Feed the Community” food drive.  Canned and non-perishable food was also collected, with all contributions benefiting Northwest Harvest.   The “Feed the Nutcracker, Feed the Community” food drive has been collecting donations at local grocery stores and events in the greater Seattle area since mid-November.

This Saturday, December 6th, the Nut truck will be attending KING 5’s Home Team Harvest Food Drive.  The Nut truck will be at Tacoma Mall from 7am-9am, Northgate Mall from 10am-12pm and Everett Mall from 1pm-3pm accepting non-perishable and canned food as well as cash donations, all benefiting Northwest Harvest.
