Forge 54, a non profit powered by Sparkhouse, concluded their 2nd annual skilled giving event, where marketing and media enthusiasts donated time, talents, and creative services to Playworks SoCal, a chapter of a national organization. The Forge 54 volunteers joined together at DGWB Advertising & Communications to work for 54 hours straight in order to create marketing deliverables, which included a mobile app, microsite, PR and social media plans, video content, and more. The deliverables can be viewed on Playworks Forge 54 Recap.

During the high-energy, 54-hour event, 81 volunteers were divided into teams according to their skill sets, and worked together to produce ready to use content for Playworks.

According to Forge 54 President, Torrey Tayenaka, the team is already looking forward to putting on another successful event next year. Interested volunteers, non-profits, hosting agencies or sponsors can find more information on the Forge 54 website or by emailing
