In-Kind Kindness: Jasculca/Terman and Associates, Inc.
In late 1998, CURE planned for its first Annual Benefit,
to be held in January, 1999 in Chicago. Having never organized
such a large-scale event before, CURE needed help. The public
affairs and strategic communications firm Jasculca/Terman
and Associates, Inc. stepped in to provide their event planning
expertise—free of charge.
That first Annual Benefit, with then First Lady Hillary
Rodham Clinton as the guest speaker, was a huge success.
It was also the first of many helping hands Jasculca/Terman
has provided CURE.
Since then, Jasculca/Terman has helped CURE at every
turn, and in many ways. Jasculca/Terman and their graphic
design division, VisCom has been involved with the production
of almost all of CURE’s printed material, including invitations,
newsletters, brochures, and annual reports. They have helped
with event planning and have sent in teams of their interns as
volunteers to help staff CURE events.
“We are committed to helping CURE wherever help
is needed,” Rick Jasculca, Chairman and CEO of Jasculca/
Terman, said. “Our work for CURE has really united Jasculca/
Terman. It’s something all the employees here can collectively
work toward—helping CURE fulfill their mission to find
a cure for epilepsy.”
“Without the phenomenal support of Jasculca/Terman, we
would never be able to reach so many people and accomplish
as much as we have. By donating their full array of professional
services to CURE, they enable us to spend more of every dollar
donated on the research that is the core of our mission,” stated
Susan Axelrod, president and founding member of CURE.
Thank you to everyone at Jasculca/Terman for sharing
CURE’s vision of a cure for epilepsy.
