Bogner establishes, “As one of the best known global lifestyle brands, Bogner has been the world’s leading company of high quality and luxurious ski fashion for more than 75 years. Since the founding days of the company, the Bogner family’s philosophy has always been centered in respect for people and nature as well as the desire to share their passion for sports.
Therefore it is only natural that Bogner has been the official outfitter of the German Winter Olympics Team since 1936. For over 25 years Bogner has been involved in establishing and maintaining the “Textile Clothing Dialog” in Germany which focuses on environmentally friendly and sustainable production.
Now Bogner of America is proud to become the official clothing sponsor of SkiDUCK, a new national non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of disabled and underprivileged children by sharing the joys of skiing, snowboarding, and nature. Through partnering with SkiDUCK, Bogner of America hopes to help spread the passion for sports to children in need.
SkiDUCK works closely with non-profit organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of America, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and the Children’s Cancer Foundation to provide underprivileged and at-risk children access to the mountains. Being entirely volunteer based 100% of any contributions made to SkiDUCK go directly towards developing programs and putting kids on the slopes.
Since February 2009, only 2 ½ months after the start of the program, SkiDUCK has taken over 120 children to the slopes and enriched their lives with a new-found passion for skiing and snowboarding. SkiDUCK has even higher hopes for the upcoming seasons and BOGNER will be right with them providing support as the Official Clothing Sponsor and also as a family with desire and willingness to help children in need to get access to nature and sports.”
