Tommy Hilfiger celebrates partnership with Autism Society San Diego
NEW YORK — The Tommy Hilfiger Group enlisted actor Josh Bowman and professional surfers Kalani Robb, C.J. Kanuha and Alek Parker to participate in Autism Society San Diego's annual summer surf camp.
In June, Josh Bowman and Kalani Robb, along with Gary Sheinbaum, CEO, Tommy Hilfiger North America and InStyle Magazine fashion director Cindy Weber-Cleary, co-hosted the opening event for the newest Tommy Hilfiger store opening in San Diego’s Fashion Valley Mall, benefitting the Autism Society San Diego.
Inspired by Autism Society San Diego’s mission and programs, Bowman and Robb came back to dedicate a day to teaching classes at the organization’s surf camp. Held at San Diego’s La Jolla Shores, the annual surf camp provides five weeks of one-on-one surf and swim instruction to persons with autism ages five years and up.
Through corporate donations and funds raised through consumer events, the Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation is underwriting Autism Society San Diego’s annual Surf Camp program to cover the costs for underprivileged families living in San Diego through 2016.
It designs and markets menswear, womenswear, children’s apparel and denim collections under the Tommy Hilfiger, Hilfiger Denim and Tommy Girl brands.
