In a technology-driven world, brand awareness is imperative for success. That’s why Terry Tateossian, founding partner of the New Jersey-based tech and marketing company Socialfix Media, spends much of her time skyrocketing clients to new levels using her expertise and dedicated business services.
Terry and her team make it their goal to exceed clients’ expectations, but they also are dedicated to donating pro bono services to charities that may need help getting the most out of media platforms.
In the past year, Socialfix received numerous accolades including Forty Under 40 from NJ Biz, Future 50 Companies from Smart CEO and 50 Most Admired Companies of 2016.
“We try to help charities which impact children, senior citizens or people who may not have enough advocacy or support in general,” says Tateossian, who holds many charitable foundations close to her heart. Socialfix has supported numerous philanthropic organizations across the country with over $500,000 in pro bono services. These include the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Parent-Child Home Program, Women’s Prison Association, Toys for Tots and the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation.
Terry and her team aid these charities by raising awareness though video production, event promotions and customized digital marketing strategies. Helping each charity create buzz in their respective areas not only benefits the charity, but the surrounding communities as well, as Socialfix aims to raise social awareness and funds for each highlighted organization.
“Our contribution is so small compared to the daily work nonprofit foundations do for the communities on a daily basis,” says Tateossian. “The real heroes of our world today are the people dedicating themselves to improving others’ lives.”
Donating tailored tech and marketing services is humbling and gives Tateossian and the entire team a sense of purpose and meaning. She urges her team members to provide recommendations of any charities that may need their marketing help.
“I cannot say enough about volunteering as an organization and what that does for your corporate culture,” she says.
Charities that wish to work with or receive services from Socialfix Media should reach out to Terry directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or (908) 574-0898.

On Friday, April 7, 2017, HudsonMOD helped Susan G. Komen North Jersey celebrate a milestone: the 20th Anniversary of its iconic Pink Tie Party. The event, which was held at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, NJ, garnered hundreds of guests, who gathered to celebrate the momentous occasion for this remarkable organization.
This year, Susan G. Komen North Jersey honored three of the most courageous women, who have dedicated their time to helping the affiliate organization soar to new levels: Lisa Herschli of Denver, Kathy Hubert-McKenna of Berkeley Heights and Deborah Q. Belfatto of Summit, who all founded the North Jersey division of Susan G. Komen together.
“It is truly inspiring to reflect on the vision our founders had, and the promise made to do whatever they could to help end this terrible disease,” says Kelly Nagle Witkowski, executive director of Komen North Jersey. “Thanks to the passion and perseverance of Deb, Lisa and Kathy, we have seen tremendous accomplishments over the last 20 years. We have invested more than $23 million to fund groundbreaking research and support local community grants to organizations right here in New Jersey. We have educated thousands of women and men about breast health and breast cancer. We have saved lives. And we will keep on working until we fulfill our promise. As we honor our founders, RWJBarnabas and Wakefern/ShopRite for their enormous impact on the success of our past, we look forward to the future and to celebrating, with them, a world without breast cancer.”
Guests who attended the extraordinary event experienced an evening of pure excitement. From cocktails to a delectable dinner, guests were able to mingle throughout the night and thoroughly enjoy the festivities. With a live performance from the Infernos, America’s no. 1 show band, guests danced and sang along to hit records. Guests were also encouraged to participate in Susan G. Komen North Jersey’s silent and live auctions, which featured items such as signed Eric Decker and Jason Pierre-Paul jerseys, Yankees tickets, artwork, gift cards from top New Jersey restaurants, wine packages, Prada and Chanel gift baskets, just to name a few.
RWJBarnabas Health served as the medical honoree and Wakefern Food Corp./ShopRite served as the corporate honoree for the evening. To put the final touches on the event space, Susan G. Komen North Jersey enlisted the help from longtime supporter Jerry Rose of Maplewood, also known as “The Design Maverick,” to help transform the Westmount’s ballroom. He has been setting the ambiance at the Pink Tie Party since Susan G. Komen North Jersey celebrated its very first event.
“We are deeply grateful for the wonderful support that we’ve received over the years from medical centers, corporations, individuals and our dedicated volunteers, and the beautiful, warm relationships that have developed,” says Deborah Belfatto. “It’s all about the relationships—we depend on these relationships to do the work that we do, to provide breast health care and access to the many women and men in New Jersey who, without our help, might never receive it.”
Susan G. Komen North Jersey will continue its fight to end breast cancer this May at its 10th Annual Race for the Cure, which will be held at its newest venue, Liberty State Park, on May 21.
