Saturday night we had the great privilege of winning two gold Addy’s from the Orlando American Advertising Federation Awards — the first for We Love Isaiah, and the second for Arnold Palmer Saves Christmas.
In addition, we’re very grateful to have been given 2014 Best of Show for We Love Isaiah. (If you aren’t familiar with the Addy’s, Best in Show is the highest award possible as it’s the winner of all categories combined.) This year we actually tied for Best of Show with Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group, which is an honor.
This is the second year in a row that we’ve won Best of Show (last year was for The Tin Man) — so, it was very unexpected.
And we say this genuinely: we seriously would not have gotten here without our wives. Thank you, wives. We took the opportunity to relive our prom days at the show:
Jon and Lynn
James and Tori
Once again we would like to thank our good friends and clients at Arnold Palmer Hospital, namely Michael Schmidt (on the right below), for continually giving us the opportunity to help pioneer in how healthcare stories are told.
And of course, we’re forever grateful to Isaiah and his family, the Gunns. It’s been a great honor to walk with you in your unfolding story.
