NYC - Taste & Shop for a Cause Sales Event w/ FCUK - 06.11.16
In preparation for the Father’s Day festivities this month, UK-based clothing brand, French Connection (FCUK), partnered with Whisky Wisemen NYC for an unforgettable -- and charitable -- Pre-Father’s Day sale event “Taste and Shop for a Cause” on Saturday, June 11 from 2 to 6pm EST at FCUK’s flagship shop in NYC’s chic SoHo district. As a result of FCUK and WWNYC’s collaboration, FCUK donated 10% of all sales during the event to WWNYC’s charity-partner, Transfernation, on top of offering 30% off the entire shop! We’re proud to announce that together, FCUK and WWNYC raised almost $700 to Transfernation, who redistributes high-volume leftover foods to hungry New Yorkers by leveraging desktop and mobile applications to easily track and allocate food. Shoppers that day gave back to the NYC community through their sharp fashion sense, indeed.
Customers perused FCUK’s sleek and smart summer collection while sipping on a range of complimentary whiskies from classics to world whiskies. If shopping wasn’t already a pick-me-up for one, than the whiskies certainly made it more worthwhile and hopefully encouraged some good purchasing decisions!
We at Whisky Wisemen NYC want to thank FCUK for its generousity in including us in its Pre-Father’s Day sale event and for supporting our Chapter and charity-partner. It was a pleasure educating shoppers about Whisky Wisemen’s mission and organization, and how contributing to social causes is not such a difficult thing to do. We want to encourage people to be more socially responsible and understand the importance of being better everyday, and we do so by not only producing informative and fun whisky events, but also establishing unique collaborative efforts with lifestyle brands, like FCUK, that share the same values and goals for improving the community and making people feel good about doing good. We look forward to what the next special opportunity will be, and we’ll be keeping you posted!
Be sure to follow FCUK, too!
