UTA will hold the 10th annual Project Impact day on Friday.
Project Impact is a global volunteer event organized by UTA’s foundation, which sees employees from the agency volunteer at charitable organizations. This year, more than 1,000 UTA employees will spend today volunteering at 60 sites located in the cities that hold UTA’s offices: Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, London and, for the first time this year, Chicago and Atlanta. In addition, members of UTA affiliated companies such as Klutch Sports Group, Digital Brand Architects and MediaLink will participate in the event. This is the first Project Impact day to be held following a two-year hiatus caused by the pandemic.
