Real Men Wear PINK

All-star athletes team up with Thomas Pink for Father’s Day charity events in San Francisco, New York City and Boston

REAL MEN WEAR PINK, and this Father’s Day, All Star sports players, Kevin Kouzmanoff (Oakland Athletics), Terrell Thomas (New York Giants) and Shawn Thornton (Boston Bruins) will be making guest appearances at Thomas Pink boutiques in these three cities to provide style advice on doing exactly that.

Kicking off the first of a three-city tour, Kevin Kouzmanoff and Thomas Pink will host an exclusive in-store shopping event on Saturday, June 5 at the San Francisco Thomas Pink boutique from 11:30am-2:30pm. Thomas Pink will then host Terrell Thomas at the Madison Avenue store on June 10 from 5-8pm, and Shawn Thornton at the Copley Place store on June 15 from 5-8pm. All players will be on-site for a limited appearance to sign autographs and meet and greet fans while they shop for that ever-impossible gift for dad for Father’s Day.

“Thomas Pink is excited to announce the Real Men Wear Pink campaign and to work with tremendous sports talent to support local charities as a part of our 2010 Father’s Day initiative,” said Jonathan Heilbron, CEO of Thomas Pink. Thomas Pink has always been a great Father’s Day gift destination, and we are thrilled to team up with sports heroes to pay a special tribute to personal heroes – our Fathers.”

Guests will also be supporting the player’s charity of choice with each purchase made during the in-store events, with 15% of the proceeds going directly to the following organizations, personally selected by each player:

The Wender Weis Foundation for Children (Kevin Kouzmanoff, San Francisco)
