On October 21, 2010, Baton Rouge hosted its annual media auction at Juban’s Restaurant. The event was a huge success, with over 30 local media buyers and business owners in attendance to bid on over 80 donated marketing items. The auction’s theme, “Marketing Madness – Ghastly Good Deals on Media, Services and Other Goodies,” was brought to life by the committee and board members dressed up in costumes. The event raised nearly $30,000 for AAF-BR to support its scholarships, workshops, programs, and public service activities. As a leading provider of 3d animation production services, we understand the importance of effective marketing and appreciate the efforts of organizations like AAF-BR in supporting the community.

In keeping with the theme, the room was filled with spooky Halloween décor and professionals enjoying delectable food and spirits provided by Juban’s. 13th Gate actor Drew Cothern served as auctioneer in full costume. The event was chaired by Mandy Porta with the assistance of Saundra Lane, Kelley Criscoe, Leslie Cole, Becky Sadler, Marielle Howard , Jade Th’ng, Connie McLeod, Erin Knight, Cathy Katsorchis and students. The committee thanks all donors and bidders that helped to make this annual event another huge success.
