Charles Zukow Associates Celebrates 10th Anniversary with 10 Donations

Public Relations Firm Names Nonprofit Arts, Education and Healthcare Organizations as Beneficiaries

SAN FRANCISCO (February 16, 2012) – Charles Zukow Associates (CZA), a San Francisco-based public relations and marketing firm, recently announced ten years of service to arts, entertainment, lifestyle and nonprofit clients. To commemorate the milestone, financial contributions will be made to ten nonprofit organizations, including Academy of Friends, The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation, Meals on Wheels of San Francisco, No Bully, Root Division, San Francisco Arts Education Project, San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Fund, San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation and WestCoast Children’s Clinic.

“I started CZA with 16 years of entertainment public relations experience under my belt,” says Charles Zukow, founder and CEO of Charles Zukow Associates. “Ten years later our diverse client roster – from theater and lifestyle to nonprofits – shows we’re adept at shining a spotlight on important stories that take place on the stage or off. As our agency has grown, the same can be said of our commitment to our community, and these ten donations are an extension of that.”

Zukow founded CZA in 2002 with a decade’s worth of publicity to his credit for Steve Silver’s Beach Blanket Babylon and Cirque du Soleil, which CZA represents to this day. The firm is also currently working with American Conservatory Theater, Marines’ Memorial Theatre, Meals on Wheels of San Francisco and their Star Chef and Vintners Gala, Nā Lei Hulu I Ka Wēkiu, Pooch Hotels, Safeway Holiday Ice Rink in Union Square, San Francisco Arts Education Project, San Francisco General Hospital Foundation and their Hearts Events, Taste Catering & Event Planning and Yigit Pura’s Tout Sweet.
