Fearless support Featured

Take a quick glance at the Web site for Circone + Associates Inc., and you’ll get the idea very quickly that the company’s employees like what they do. The words, ‘We are fanatics, we are fearless, we are focused,” definitely leave you with an impression of enthusiasm and commitment.

This approach has positioned the firm as one of the most sought after marketing agencies in the Columbus region. Fortunately, for those who are struggling in life and need a little extra support, the company and its president, Bradley J. Circone, have the same passion and energy about community service.

Employees at Circone live by the idea that you get what you give. An effort is made to support, counsel and engage in community affairs and concerns that stretch beyond the scope of business relations.

One of those places is Kids ‘n Kamp, an independent nonprofit organization that helps support children afflicted with cancer. The group was founded by Circone’s parents in 1982. More than 400 children and families are supported by Kids ‘n Kamp each and every year.

Circone helped get Pepsi, Donatos Pizza and White Castle to commit to long-term support for Kids ‘n Kamp. The company helped with a fund-raiser benefiting wives and families of injured or fallen U.S. Navy Seals in conjunction with last fall’s OSU-Navy football game.

Circone also coordinated a musical CD that raised more than $130,000, a social event that raised more than $44,000 in three hours and a murder mystery event that cost $42,000 less than it would have thanks to a partnership agreement between Circone and the Hilton Columbus/Polaris hotel.

Just as Circone + Associates searches for a great connection between the brands it is trying to market and the clients those brands are seeking to appeal to, the company looks to make a meaningful touch to the charitable causes it commits to.

Chiropractic Cares was a two-day, statewide event raising $40,000 for the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research, the Butch Reynolds Care for Kids Foundation and the WellCare Foundation.

Circone himself is also involved in countless volunteer efforts, from golf outings to special birthday and Christmas parties to his efforts coaching elementary school boys basketball.
