When you have big news it’s hard to keep it a secret…and we have really big news. We’ve been absolutely on the edge of our seats, waiting to announce the identity of our newest TravisMathew ambassador. You’ve probably already noticed him around from our recent Flash Sale, but we are elated to officially welcome actor Chris Pratt to our family!

“I am extremely excited to make this announcement. TravisMathew has the best clothes for on and off the golf course.” Chris Pratt said on his Instagram. “When TravisMathew approached me about a partnership, the first thing we discussed was how to join forces and raise money for charity.”

We kicked off our partnership with Chris Pratt by hosting a Charity Flash Sale benefitting Special Olympics. This year, Chris proudly joined Special Olympics as a global ambassador. With a mission focused on inclusion, dignity, and acceptance for all, we couldn’t think of a better organization to support together.

From November 8th – 11th, we held an online charity flash sale with items reaching up to 60% off. Not only did we pledge 100% of all profits from the sale to Special Olympics, but we also committed to a minimum donation of $1 million dollars. And the best part? We were actually able to raise a monumental donation of $1,074,706. This is the largest donation in TravisMathew history, and we couldn’t have done it without your help! (And of course, not without the help of Chris Pratt.)

“It’s been a banner year for TravisMathew but the proudest moment we have had is being able to contribute and give back in such a large way with our partnership with Chris Pratt and the Special Olympics,” TravisMathew CEO Ryan Ellis stated. “We are really excited about our partnership with Chris Pratt, and the Charity Sale was such a great way to kick it off. Most people know this, but Chris is an incredible guy, always looking for ways to give back and make others happy—through his work and philanthropic partnerships. This year, we are really looking forward to Chris bringing his personality and talents into various marketing campaigns. He’s an incredible fit for our brand and we are proud to have him wearing TravisMathew.”

We’re excited to bring you more opportunities to get to know Chris in the future—so keep your eyes peeled! And thanks again for all you did to make our Charity Flash Sale a huge success.
