24 hours to save 72 years of creativity

The ADCC All-Nighter

July 10-11

The industry is coming together to pull the ultimate all-nighter.

Since our founding in 1948, The Advertising & Design Club of Canada (ADCC) has seen a few firsts. After 72 years, 2020 has proven to bring a first like no other. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the heavily-relied on funding that supports our non-profit organization has disappeared and the future of The ADCC is now in jeopardy.

On July 10-11, we’ll be hosting the first-ever 24-hour fundraising webathon to help save Canada’s oldest organization dedicated to encouraging excellence in Canadian advertising and design.

The ADCC All-Nighter Webathon will feature a livestream of 24 hours of programming meant to inspire, educate, and entertain our creative community – and rally support to help save The ADCC.

Leading up to the All-Nighter, we’ll announce our special guests on Instagram. A full schedule and link to the livestream will be posted here closer to the 10th.
