"Working on this project has been way too much fun for us; allowing the kids to have full creative mojo on the design from inception to completion has been very rewarding. I can't think of a better way to kick off our new Fun Life Series hats," says Mr. Weldon, CEO & Co-Founder. Weldon goes on to say the fact that kids put in so much effort and thought into creating a design, colors and style shows real passion. Proceeds from this hat are going towards a scholarship fund for the girls.
Presentation of Mary Academy high school sophomores Audrey Latino and Mackenzie Weldon were inspired for their East Coast hat design while at Hampton Beach, NH one day, realizing how much they love the area. "The East Coast is so beautiful and we wanted to create something that showed that," says Ms. Latino. "I envisioned a simple design that was classy, plus we need to represent," says Ms. Weldon
