EVNTIV CELEBRATES FIFTH ANNIVERSARY BY GIVING BACK
St. Louis event planning agency to donate $105,000 in 2017 to local nonprofit organizations
Event planning and creative agency Evntiv celebrates its fifth anniversary in 2017. To mark the occasion, the company will be donating more than $105,000 in cash and services to a number of St. Louis area nonprofit organizations.
“Instead of throwing a party to celebrate our accomplishments, we wanted to do something for the organizations and people who inspire us and serve so many in our community,” explained Evntiv President and Cofounder Sam Foxman. “These are the organizations that have supported us over the past five years—without them, we would not be where we are today.”
“One of our largest donations was made by my business partner, Keith Alper, to the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation and Siteman Cancer Center to help fund Illumination, an event that raises over $3 million each year to help find a cure for cancer through the Cancer Frontier Fund,” stated Foxman.
Located in downtown St. Louis, Evntiv is part of the Nitrous Effect™, a unique collective of marketing and communications agencies that work together to solve complex challenges for their clients better and faster than the traditional multi-agency model. Evntiv offers full-service event planning, entertainment booking, audio/visual production, video creation and a suite of graphic and web design services. The Evntiv team has produced award-winning galas, outdoor festivals, fashion events, grand openings, concerts and awards shows.
“Evntiv, and the Nitrous Effect™ agencies, have been our secret weapon for elevating our guests’ experience and the amount of funding raised for our programs,” stated Kristin Marino, Manager, Special Events for the Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital. “The team brings a balance of creativity, innovation and operational skills to help guide our decisions and get things done.”
Since Foxman and Alper cofounded Evntiv in 2012, the agency has become a sought-after event planning and experiential agency, not only in St. Louis, but throughout the country. Evntiv has recently expanded its corporate events department, which focuses on field marketing events, business meetings and conferences for financial, medical and technology companies.
“We are growing our national footprint rather quickly,” said Foxman. “This year, we will produce over 150 events in 56 different cities.” States Foxman. “No matter how much we expand into other markets, our hearts are in St. Louis and giving back is part of our DNA.”, adds Foxman.
