Brands are integrated into all aspects of society and, as consumers demand them to be more responsible participants, brands are expected to be more personal and transparent with their target audiences. Yet, in a world full of social media fads and temporary bandwagon philanthropy, can brands ever really be considered authentic? Join us for a conversation around brand safety, the use of social influencers and managing an authentic brand image in today's market. We asked: Are brands for real?

Over 600 of our closest advertising colleagues and friends gathered at Unici Casa in Culver City for dinner, dancing, and TOYS! We collected over 750 toys to benefit the Toys For Tots Foundation. Thank you to all who attended and brought a toy (or two!) to put a smile on a child's face this holiday season, plus an especially huge "Thanks!" to our Marines who attended. We appreciate all that you do to make our toy drive, and all toy drives this season, such a success.

Complete with Santa, live music, & Marines, over 800 advertising professionals celebrated the holiday season!
