We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. As event professionals we work with many non-profit organizations for any special occasions. Partnering with a Non-Profit Organization is always rewarding when you take the time to help others in need within your community. So what are some of the benefits of these relationships? It could be professional development for your employees, brand recognition, customer loyalty, or in-kind donations?

Howie Nestel, Founder and CEO of Sharkmatic Advertising in San Antonio, TX has been in marketing and advertising for over 25 years. As a graduate of the University of Texas Business School in Austin, his cool little ad agency has provided services to over 1,500 companies including: Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, Chrysler, MTV, and much more. His creative marketing-savvy team has also completed over 750 websites for various businesses and non-profit organizations. 

In addition to running his advertising agency, Howie Nestel sits on 6 non-profit organization boards, and has donated his time, talent and effort to over 50 charities.

Now that is living an extra-ordinary life. 

Parking will be available for guests in the Frost Bank surface parking lot next door at 5:30pm
