American Marketing GroupAmerican Marketing Group again partnered with its charity of choice, Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest science and advocacy organization, at its Travel Market Conference in Palm Desert, California. The group reached a new fundraising milestone by raising over $82,000 for Autism Speaks.


Fund raising efforts at the company’s global Travel Market Conference at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa last week saw travel professionals as well as preferred suppliers and staff participating in several events, including a Walk for Autism around the beautifully landscaped property.


Other fund raising events included a demonstration by artist Gregory Adamson who created a painting on-site and that was auctioned off in a live auction. There was so much excitement in the room that two additional paintings were sold during the event as well. Greg is a California-based “performance” artist who regularly creates paintings set to music, in front of an audience at fundraisers, charity events, festivals and conferences.  He has received international recognition for his unique work.


The Gala on Saturday evening was the final event that had a charitable component. It included a cocktail reception, dinner and dancing, as well as a grand silent auction.


“Autism Speaks is thrilled to once again partner with American Marketing Group for their Bi-Annual Travel Conference,” said Christie Godowski, Autism Speaks National Walk Director.  “American Marketing Group and its partners have been incredible supporters of Autism Speaks over the past 6 years having raised prior to this conference over $120,000 since the partnership began.  Funds raised have been used to provide programs and resources for children and adults on the autism spectrum, at every stage of life.”


“The autism cause has always had special meaning for our family, agents, suppliers and employees.  We are proud to partner with Autism Speaks at Travel Market once again and are thankful to everyone who participated in this year’s fundraiser,” said Jim Mazza, Chief Operating Officer, TRAVELSAVERS.


“American Marketing Group is proud to raise funds and awareness for those affected by autism spectrum disorders. We are honored and humble that so many of our agents have helped to support this cause – we truly will make a difference in the lives of families affected by autism,” says Nicole Mazza, Chief Marketing Officer, TRAVELSAVERS, NEST and The Affluent Traveler Collection.
