Marketing firm donates $50K to cancer charity

SKM Group, a Depew marketing firm, made good on a promise made a year ago in celebration of its 25th anniversary.

The company pledged to raise $25,000 in honor of an employee who was battling cancer. SKM then doubled down on its fundraising efforts by adding another $25,000 of its own money.

After reaching the initial goal, all of the funds were presented in a ceremony at the American Cancer Society in Buffalo on July 10.

A marketing campaign featured a garden gnome looking for a new place to call home. The gnome had his own Twitter account and inevitably did find a home in the garden of the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge Buffalo location on Summer Street.
