Foothill Ranch, CA, United States (CNS) – Keeping up with the latest sportswear can be cool, but one designer is doing something truly awesome with its newest lines.
Oakley, Inc., best know for its designer sunglasses, prescription eyewear and goggles, is partnering with the charitable organization and awareness group Talk About Curing Autism. The Southern California company has agreed to donate $20 to TACA with each purchase made of its two latest lines of eyewear remade for the specially designed TACA Oakley Fuel Cell and the TACA Oakley Ravishing.
Pat McIlvain, Oakley’s vice president of global sports marketing, discussed the partnership in a press release.
“We are honored to team with TACA and play a part in spreading the message of hope,” McIlvain said. “These new TACA special editions will fuel awareness, and we are proud to contribute $20 from each sale to assist in supporting TACA’s ongoing mission to help children with autism reach their true potential.”
The men’s Fuel Cell and the women’s Ravishing are stylized in a puzzle motif, signifying that the puzzle of autism, which affects one in every 91 children across the world, can be solved. Each sunglass package also includes a puzzle piece with an attached wearable pin in the shape of the TACA logo.
“Corporations like Oakley are a wonderful gift to TACA and the families we serve,” said TACA Executive Director Lisa Ackerman. “Oakley brings a powerful influence to foster awareness and visibility of autism, and to aid our mission to help a community in great need. We are grateful for this support, and for friends like Oakley.”
