Multi-year partnership will benefit Boot Campaign and their commitment to the military
GATLINBURG, Tenn., June 3, 2015 /PR Newswire/ — Ole Smoky® Tennessee Moonshine, the most widely distributed moonshine in the country, announces today their official partnership with nonprofit Boot Campaign, where together they will help raise awareness and funds for military families.
Boot Campaign is a national nonprofit that promotes patriotism by putting civilians in combat boots; educates the community about issues challenging service members during and after serving; and provides financial assistance to military families to fill the gaps left by government programs and other nonprofits.
Ole Smoky Moonshine will support Boot Campaign through the sale of co-branded merchandise, starting with a Patriotic Limited Edition Gift Pack available this summer, where a dollar will be donated back to the Campaign for every unit sold. In addition, Boot Campaign will raise funds and awareness at Ole Smoky Moonshine events and at the company’s two Tennessee Distilleries, The Holler in Gatlinburg and The Barn at The Island in Pigeon Forge, where each year over 2 million visitors pass through to experience and taste real Appalachia moonshine.
“We couldn’t feel more proud to have an organization like Boot Campaign, who has shown a huge commitment to the military and their families, become part of our family,” said Joe Baker, co-founder of Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine. “We cannot wait to show them the same support and love our service men and women have shown our great nation.”
“We are so honored to partner with such a patriotic company as Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine; their commitment to our nation’s servicemen and women is unprecedented,” continued Robyn Payne, CEO of Boot Campaign. “Together, we’ll make a profound impact in the lives of America’s military families, by raising awareness of veterans’ issues and providing the assistance they absolutely deserve.”
