DC BREEZE STRENGTHEN COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP WITH WAVEBORN SUNGLASSES
The DC Breeze announced today that Waveborn Sunglasses will be their Official Community Partner for the 2015 season. Waveborn changes how people see the world by selling high-quality Italian sunglasses and funding life changing cataract surgeries around the globe. DC Breeze and Waveborn will work together to promote the sport of ultimate at all skill levels and ages in the local DC community.
As the Official Community Partner for the DC Breeze, Waveborn will sponsor the pre-game youth clinics, the kids’ zone, the fan zone, video highlights, and other Breeze youth clinics throughout the season. Waveborn is a company built with a philanthropic focus – Waveborn donates 10% of profits to SEE International to fund sight restoring cataract surgeries around the globe. With its community focus and culture of giving, Waveborn is the perfect fit to work with the DC Breeze on community outreach this season.
“It’s a great pleasure to partner with the DC Breeze again this season,” says Waveborn CEO Mike Malloy, “The DC Breeze organization has a strong foundation, and we look forward to supporting the continued growth and development of ultimate in DC for years to come. Waveborn is excited to help teach the next generation of professional ultimate players.”
As partners, the DC Breeze and Waveborn will promote each other via social media. DC Breeze players will be sporting Waveborn shades during warmups, and 2014 DC Breeze captain, Jon Pressimone, will be making his male modeling debut in Waveborns this spring. Waveborn will also be well represented at home games in the fan zones and pre-game youth clinics. The Breeze organization is excited to begin the 2015 season with Waveborn as a key partner.
“Waveborn is a wonderful partner. Their organization loves ultimate, makes terrific sunglasses, and remains focused on giving back to the community and the world in the midst of their rapid growth. What more could we want in a Community Partner?” asks DC Breeze Co-Owner Don Grage.
