This week, Alex andÂ Ani Charity by Design teamed up with Travelers Championship, a world-class PGA TOUR event that serves as the primary fundraiser of the Greater Hartford Community Foundation, Inc.Â Â This nonprofit 501(c)(3) operated exclusively for the charitable purpose of raising funds for the benefit of the community.
Travelers ChampionshipÂ chose Alex and Ani for the main tournament gift to the lovely ladies who are behind the scenes doing amazing things for communities across the country through the PGA Tour Wives Association.
â€œI am thrilled that we were involved in such a great event.Â As a sport and fashion enthusiast, it is such an honor to put my two loves together, Â all for a great cause.Â The PGA Tour Wives Association enabled us to get a hold of some powerful women who are now wearing our brand. When you can tie charity and fashion in with the influence and empowerment of sport, itâ€™s a beautiful thing.Â We want to thank the staff at Travelers Championship for their support and hospitalityâ€”we were impressed with how they ran this tournament and by how much emphasis they put on the Greater Hartford Community through their philanthropic efforts.Â We look forward to working together again in the near future.â€ â€“ Nicki Castonguay, VP of Charity by Design-Alex and Ani
“Teaming up with Alex and Ani to provide the PGA TOUR Ladies with this yearâ€™s tournament gift was a home run. The personal experience the Alex and Ani staff provided to the ladies and quality of the bangles was first class.Â Alex and Ani was the perfect addition to this yearâ€™s Women’s Day Presented by Travelers. Their unique styles and design provided a great opportunity for women to work one-on-one with the Alex and Ani staff to customize their own personal bangle set.” â€“ Robin Dziedzic-Player Relations and Design Manager-Travelers Championship (on PGA Tour Wives Association Gifting Event)
Alex and Ani was represented at theÂ Women’s Day event, selling to over 500 women professionals, andÂ donating aÂ percentage of all sales to Paul Newmanâ€™s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp through the Travelers Championship Charity Foundation.
“Alex and Ani proudly supports the Travelers Championship and the PGA Tour Wives Association. Â We respect and admire such great organizations and look forward to future partnership opportunities.” â€“ Giovanni Feroce, CEO-Alex and Ani
