219: How This Chain of Garden Centers Raises Six-Figures with Cause Marketing

Today on Cause Talk Radio, Megan and Joe talk to A. J. Petitti, President of Petitti's Garden Centers, a 8-store chain based in Ohio, about their partnership and support for Cleveland Clinic's Children's Hospital.

  • How Petitti's measures the impact of their cause marketing, both for the hospital and their business.
  • How Petitti's got Scotts Miracle-Gro involved in the fundraiser as a matching gift partner, which doubled the campaign's success!
  • How employees have responded to the program.
  • How the hospital works with Petitti's to educate employees and show the impact of their hard work.
  • The two other fundraisers Petitti's hosts during the year.
