ROYAL OAK, Michigan – Orvis Royal Oak is pleased to announce their “Giveback Days” event taking place throughout the month of September. The outdoor retailer is partnering with Clinton River Watershed Council, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting, enhancing and celebrating the Clinton River, its watershed and Lake St. Clair.
“Orvis is passionate about supporting this specific project because there are three designated trout streams within the boundaries of this watershed,” stated Jason Davis, Orvis Royal Oak store manager. “The donation will be used to improve in-stream and riparian river habitat within the Clinton River Watershed through the Clinton River Cold Water Conservation Project. It is vital to conserve and protect these waterways for the next generation of recreation, specifically anglers.”
In addition to a $2,000 cash donation from Orvis, the company is challenging their customers to give back, as well. During the month of September, customers donating $10 or more will receive a $10 Orvis savings card (limit one per customer).
There will be an after-hours event in the Orvis Royal Oak store, 29500 Woodward Ave., on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, from 6-8 p.m. where the final donations will be awarded to the Clinton River Watershed Council and partner groups will be raffling Orvis products to help raise additional funds. The public is invited to attend and there will be free refreshments and drawings for Orvis savings cards.
Orvis commits 5% of pre-tax profits to protecting and sustaining the natural world, not only now, but for all who follow.
