AAF-Web-Slide-Peach-VoteMembers of the American Advertising Federation Northeast Pennsylvania came together to paint a 4′ x 4′ wooden Peach for promotion of the 3rd Annual Peach Music Festival presented by the Allman Brothers Band  that will be held on August 14-17, 2014 at Montage Mountain Pavillion. Proceeds raised from Paint a Peach will go directly to benefit Marley’s Mission, a non-profit organization that provides equine-based therapy free of charge to children, and their families, who have experienced trauma.

From that inspiration, members of the club formed a silhouette of a horse to represent Marley’s Mission and had fun with the remaining painted lettering that that had to be incorporated on the peach: “Peach Music Festival 2014” and “Montage Mountain”.
