Meet Sally

SallyHi! I’m Sally Blommel, the newest and oldest team member at The C-3 Group. I’m so thrilled to be here….and even happier to be working with this amazing group of dedicated, creative, talented, caring, good-looking, witty and smart people, especially my “old” WING/Z-93 radio colleague, Brad Cullman, who taught me everything about schmoozing and honesty!

Although small in stature I am HUGE in the experience department (and name dropping.) A graduate of Northern Kentucky University and former classmate of George Clooney who, after two weeks sitting next to me in Speech Class, finally said something like “see ya lata kid. I’m ditchin’ this two-bit town and headin’ west …to make it big in the movies see.” So I left too…three years later…to pursue a career in broadcasting. I only made it across the river to Cincinnati. So I began there…at WKRC radio as a promotions assistant and Bengals Radio Network Coordinator before becoming the marketing/promotions director and talk show producer (“Midday with Mike McConnell” and “The Bill Cunningham Show”) at the BIG One – 700 WLW. Still short,  but moving up – as in North –  I left the Queen City for the Gem City and took over marketing and promotions at WING and Z-93 working with the legendary Steve Kirk and still amazing Kim Faris, among others, and creating  innovative events and promotions for clients such as Coca Cola, Pepsi, McDonalds and Kings Island. Following radio my career path then led me into public service as a program coordinator for Montgomery County where I organized events such as “RiverBlast!”, “Inventing Flight” and many, many concerts at Courthouse Square and Riverscape and then as the administrator for the city of Centerville’s Benham’s Grove.

There’s more, but you get the gist of it…I’ve been around. And, while the work is nice and pays the bills, I love working for free too! I have served as a board member with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and March of Dimes and volunteer with many organizations such as Washington Township’s Woodland Lights and Centerville’s Americana Festival. In addition, I am a member of Incarnation Church served and am in my 14th year as pre-school teacher in its PREP program.

But wait! There’s more. I pack a lot into this 5’1 frame of mine. I have a personal life too! It includes a family – one amazing husband, three wonderful children and two exceptional grandsons – and a warm and cheerful home in Centerville. I’m truly blessed! And, after living here for almost 30 years, I gotta say, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. It truly is a city of neighbors; friendly folks who care about the community and each other. So, I embrace the opportunity here at C-3 Group to provide the best service to our clients with lots of enthusiasm, energy and small shoes. They fit. And, I think I’ll fit in here too.

Company named Outstanding Small Corporation for charitable work through “C-3 Cares” initiative

The Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Greater Dayton Region Chapter recently announced that the C-3 Group has been selected as an Outstanding Small Corporation co-honoree. We are absolutely thrilled, honored, and humbled to receive this recognition.

The Outstanding Small Corporation Award honors a small business or corporation that demonstrates outstanding commitment through financial support and through encouragement and motivation of others to take leadership roles toward philanthropy and community involvement. The C-3 Group was nominated for the award by our 2016 C-3 Cares partner, St. Vincent de Paul Dayton.

We began C-3 Cares in 2013 with the goal of giving something back to the many deserving and wonderful organizations that work hard every day to make Dayton a better place to live, work, and play. We’re proud that we’ve been able to help the real heroes in our community in our own little way.

The C-3 Group will be honored at the annual National Philanthropy Day luncheon on Tuesday, November 15 at the Sinclair Community College Ponitz Center. Tickets for the luncheon will be available for purchase at www.afpdayton.org/npd.html.
