A&F Challenge

When Abercrombie & Fitch reached out about participating in their upcoming A&F Challenge, I knew it was going to be a hard yes from me. If we are going to be totally honest, I was invited to attend an A&F event earlier this year to check out their newly renovated store and marketing re-brand. I had wanted to attend but you know, life, 4-year-old, traffic, I didn’t make it. Wishfully thinking it wouldn’t be that good of an event and I should get my FOMO under control. Turns out my FOMO was spot on as the event looked fabulous, so fun and every influencer left with a bag of Abercrombie swag that would leave any fashion blogger envious. I swore if I was ever invited to an Abercrombie event again it would be prioritized and not missed!

The A&F Challenge Preview Party was to get everyone together, learn more about the cause, build excitement, see what goes into the Challenge and all of the details for September 8th. Also Abercrombie throws an INCREDIBLE party, so I can only imagine how insanely cool the actual event will be.

Make sure you read all the way to the bottom to find out how to enter the GIVEAWAY!

The A&F Challenge supports SeriousFun Children’s Network, a global community of camps and programs for kids with serious illness and their families. The network was founded by actor and philathropist Paul Newman, who wanted every child. no matter their medical condition, to experience the joy and magic of camp – always free of charge.

Sine the first camp opened in 1988, SeriousFun has delivered life-changing experience to more than 864,000 children living with serious illness and their family members.

Specially-designed facilities and programs allow every child, no matter the medical condition, the opportunity to experience the magic of camp—always free of charge. For a week at a time, being sick takes a back seat to being a kid. The network consists of 30 camps and programs worldwide.

Abercrombie & Fitch first connected with SeriousFun in 2011 through member camp Flying Horse Farms, located in Mt. Gilead, Ohio, near the Home Office. In the last five years, A&F associates have volunteered more than 7,000 hours at Flying Horse Farms. Driven by a groundswell of associate enthusiasm, their partnership has expanded into one with the entire SeriousFun Children’s Network.

In 2016, Abercrombie made a $15 million, five-year commitment to SeriousFun. The organization will be the benefactor of The A&F Challenge through 2020, with a commitment to raise at least $1 million annually for this great cause.

Founded in 2001, The A&F Challenge is Abercrombie & Fitch Co.’s largest annual fundraiser, featuring headlining bands, local food and drink and activities for every age. With over 3,000 attendees annually, The Challenge has raised more than $10 million to date. This year, all proceeds benefit SeriousFun Children’s Network.

Please note: Tickets are nonrefundable. The event is rain or shine.
