DETROIT, Mich., Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sterling Shepard, wide receiver for the New York Giants, and Detroit-based start-up Lawrence Hunt Dress Shirts are excited to announce their partnership and endorsement agreement. Shepard joins Detroit Tigers' James McCann as an official brand ambassador for the company.
On behalf of Sterling Shepard and James McCann, 200 dress shirts were donated to the Harlem Children's Zone and the Michigan Veteran's Foundation to help both students and veterans prepare for a new career. The Harlem Children Zone is a non-profit organization in Harlem aimed at providing comprehensive and critical support to children and families in need. The Michigan Veteran's Foundation is a non-profit organization in Detroit that helps homeless veterans regain stability and get back on their feet.
Lawrence Hunt Dress Shirts launched in early 2016 and is known for building dress shirts that look classy enough for the boardroom and also keep you cool in the heat or during high stress situations. A patent-pending design and process is used to build the shirts with performance fabric technology and traditional 100% cotton fabric, making the dress shirts breathable and sweat-wicking.
"Lawrence Hunt shirts are a game changer," said Shepard. "They look sharp, have extra stretch and sweat protection, plus they feel great. I look forward to being a part of this company's growth and am very happy we were able to give shirts to those in need this holiday season. This will certainly help to build confidence in our youth entering the workforce."
"We are thrilled to have Sterling on our team," said Lawrence Hunt CEO, Jeff Schattner. "Sterling will play a big part in our growth strategy and we have some exciting plans for 2017. It's a testament to both Sterling and James' character to donate dress shirts for the holidays and I couldn't ask for a better fit for our brand."
Lawrence Hunt Dress Shirts retail starting at $50 for women and $68 for men and are currently available online at www.lawrencehunt.co. More information on the company is available online.
