Flying Pig Ranch Studios is one of 35 exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals recognized for excellence in community service and corporate social responsibility. The new winners join 99 other businesses, organizations and individuals who were previously recognized this year.
The Communitas Awards is an international effort to recognize the spirit of communitas, people helping people. Communitas winners unselfishly give of themselves and their resources and are changing the way they do business to benefit their communities. Other winners include AARP, American Airlines and Honda to mention a few.
The award was given for the documentary “Look Where I Stand” produced to raise awareness of the efforts of the Achievement Centers for Children and Families of Delray Beach, Florida. The thirty minute video documents the forty year history of an organization that has helped thousands of children to break the cycle of poverty. Ray Smithers and Jerry Trowbridge, owners of Flying Pig Ranch Studios released the following statement: “We are thrilled that ‘Look Where You Stand’ has received such attention and recognition. In addition to our contribution of the production a great deal of thanks is owed to many in the community who also provided a tremendous amount of in-kind support.”
Communitas Awards is an outgrowth of the pro bono recognition program of the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (http://www.amcpros.com), a several thousand member group that honors creative achievement and fosters partnerships with charities and community organizations. As part of its mission, AMCP gives grants to community organizations and underwrites a large portion of Communitas expenses.
"By recognizing individuals, organizations and companies for their volunteerism and socially responsible business practices, we are hoping to not only bring attention to great programs, but are working with community minded leaders to make the spirit of communitas an essential element of every business," said Ed Dalheim, executive director of AMCP.
Flying Pig Ranch Studios has been providing professional visual creative in Palm Beach and surrounding counties for nearly 25 years, much of it pro-bono. Past pro-bono productions have included not only the Achievement Centers for Children & Families but United Way of Palm Beach County and Dogs and Cats Forever of Saint Lucie and Martin counties in Florida.
