Abercrombie & Fitch Co issued the following announcement on June 10.
Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF) today announced the headliners for its annual fundraiser, The A&F Challenge, benefitting SeriousFun Children’s Network. Galantis, MisterWives, Arizona and Greyson Chance will headline the event on September 6, 2019, with supporting acts from Tae and the Wave, Bummers, The Mighty Troubadours and Whiskey Business.
This camp-inspired music festival and fundraiser is hosted at A&F Co.’s Home Office in New Albany from 5-11 p.m. It aims to celebrate the magic of camp and raise funds for SeriousFun, a global community of camps for kids with serious illnesses and their families. In addition to live music, guests can enjoy unlimited food and drink from local partners, including a beer garden sponsored by Rhinegeist Brewery, and various experiences such as an exclusive DIY apparel booth, glamp lounges, axe throwing, hot air balloon rides and more. Camp Fitch, an area created for families and kids of all ages, will offer a true camp experience with inflatables, a zipline, archery and rock climbing.
General admission is $75 for adults and $25 for kids 15 and under, and includes unlimited food and drinks, access to all activities and an event tee. Children under two are free. VIP tickets are also available, offering guests an elevated experience and access to an exclusive pre-party. Participants are invited to fundraise beyond their ticket price to raise additional money for SeriousFun via www.anfchallenge.org.
“Our work with SeriousFun is close to my and our associates’ hearts, and we are looking forward to continuing our support through this year’s A&F Challenge,” said Fran Horowitz, CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. “We are honored to help SeriousFun give children with serious illnesses the magical experience of camp, and more importantly, to allow them to just be kids again.”
Founded by actor and philanthropist Paul Newman, SeriousFun is made up of 30 camps and partner programs across the globe that allow children living with more than 50 medical conditions the opportunity to experience the joy, hope and friendship of camp – always free of charge. The Network includes Flying Horse Farms – located north of Columbus in Mt. Gilead, Ohio – where A&F Co. associates have volunteered for more than 15,000 hours since it opened in 2011.
In 2016, A&F Co. and SeriousFun launched a five-year, $15 million partnership through 2020, which was inspired by associates’ enthusiasm for volunteering for the organization. The unique partnership includes a summer program that sends more than 100 A&F Co. associates to volunteer as camp counselors at 15 camps worldwide. To date, associates have spent more than 60,000 hours volunteering across the Network and have raised more than $500,000 through their own fundraising efforts. Since 2001, the A&F Challenge has raised nearly $20 million for a variety of charities, including SeriousFun, which support A&F Co.’s philanthropic mission to positively impact the health and wellness of youth in the communities it touches across the globe.
