TORONTO – David Hearn has announced the success of The David Hearn Foundation hat sales fundraising initiative, which has raised approximately $20,000 for the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

The David Hearn Foundation hats, produced by Levelwear, went on sale in March 2016 via e-commerce and retail channels and sold out shortly after, with all proceeds being donated to the Alzheimer Society of Canada. Hearn’s sponsor Extendicare pledged to donate an additional $2 per hat sale to the initiative, helping The David Hearn Foundation reach its contribution goal.

Hearn, a global ambassador of Extendicare on and off the course, has been working closely with the company to support a cause and organization both are strongly involved in with the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

Off the course, Hearn has been working with Alzheimer Society of Brant Haldimand Norfolk Hamilton Halton since 2012, and announced a national partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada during the launch of his Foundation in 2015.

“The David Hearn Foundation hat initiative was another way for us to give back to a cause we care deeply about,” said Hearn. “Our goal was to not only raise funds for the Alzheimer Society of Canada, but also awareness with every hat bought. We saw hat sales come not only from across Canada, but across the US as well, so I think our message is definitely getting out there. I also want to thank my partners Extendicare and Levelwear for supporting this initiative and my foundation from the start.”
