Hanks Kerchiefs teamed up with both charities for the Good for a Laugh benefit on March 1 at the Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles. The evening had an auction to help raise funds for both charities. Hanks Kerchiefs auctioned off the naming rights to two of their new designs – the Aurora Kerchief and the Cheng Kerchief.
The company will also be donating a percentage of their proceeds between January and March to the two organizations.
Speaking about this partnership, Colin Hanks said: "Since the very beginning, I've always wanted there to be a charity component to Hanks Kerchiefs. Having just discovered both War Child and INARA, they seemed like a great fit for our first quarter charity. Once we started coming up with items to put up for auction at the Good for a Laugh event, we saw another opportunity to do something special. We are so very proud to present the Aurora Kerchief and the Cheng Kerchief. The Aurora is named after of one of our auction winners daughter, while The Cheng Kerchief is named after the kids of The Cheng Family, who not only now have a Kerchief named after them, but they also have their Instagram handle at @minibuzzsquad."
Arwa Damon, founder of INARA, said: “We are so grateful to Colin and Hanks Kerchiefs for their generosity. It’s absolutely incredible to have such amazing support. Not only are they raising vital money for our cause, but also helping to raise awareness. It really does ensure that war wounded refugee children get the help they so desperately need.”
