Cork Tree Creative recently signed on as a sponsor of the “Get to know m.e. campaign: The Metro-East. I live here. I love it.” The purpose of the campaign is to unite various local businesses in the area and fund a comprehensive, positive-image campaign for the Metro-East. Additionally, the funding of visible projects to make our community even stronger will be considered in the marketing efforts.
Laura Reed, Co-Owner and Director of Public Relations for Cork Tree Creative, thought this campaign was a great way to showcase the Metro-East’s many positive attributes. Reed said, “We have a great community and more and more people are starting to talk about the Metro-East for its food scene, housing stock, bustling Main Streets and our parks, which are only going to get better.” As a business owner that regularly supports the community, she also stated that there’s a lot of pride among Illinois residents and businesses, supporting each other and cooperating to make this area a better place to live, work and play.
The “Get to know m.e.” campaign is officially being launched March 2015 and a few sponsor spots are still available for local businesses wanting to participate. The website, www.gettoknowthemetroeast.com, is also accepting project ideas. Want to learn more? Use the contact form on the website or find up-to-date campaign details on their Facebook page.
There are so many reasons to live in the Metro-East and love it!
