Score big for charity with Local Laundry x Hitmen 25th anniversary collab
The Calgary Hitmen have been a huge part of the local sports scene since they were founded in 1994. This year, they’re celebrating their 25th year as an organization and have teamed up with Enmax and clothing brand Local Laundry to raise money for charity through “The Hitmen Pledge”!
The Hitmen Pledge challenges Calgarians to put aside just 25 hours of their time to help out a friend, a neighbour or a stranger. You can also get involved in a non-profit, or help kids play sports. By doing just one or all of these things (if you’re the best kind of overachiever), you could win $25,000 for a charity of your choice!
So where’s Local Laundry’s place in this whole movement? Well, they’re doing what they do best! They’ve collaborated with The Hitmen and Calgary artist Sam Mendoza of Diamond in the Rough Originals. Sam has created a custom Canadian-made crewneck to share the story of the Calgary Hitmen’s pledge to the community.
This unique design pays homage to the founder, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, and the team itself with the fuschia and black colouring and the recognizable Hitmen emblem. This sweater is every day wearable, and like the rest of Local Laundry’s products, is soft as heck!
$25 dollars from each sweater sold will go towards the Calgary Hitmen Foundation. CHF provides post-secondary funding for Hitmen players and supports both grassroots sports and Camp Kindle, a camp for children with cancer and their sibling, through the Kids Cancer Care Foundation
If you would like one of the Hitmen x Local Laundry x DITRO Pledge sweaters, you can pre-order it here until Feb. 16th! Or if you’d like to pledge your time, you can find more information on how to do so here!
Happy 25th, Hitmen!
