The Eagle Rock Yacht Club (ERYC) of Los Angeles has teamed up with NYC boutique beach towel company Breezeway for a limited edition line of towels, just in time for summer. The LA-based dodgeball league and 501(c)3 nonprofit organization will receive 25% of the profit from sales. Proceeds will go towards the ERYC’s youth programs at various recreation centers throughout Los Angeles including Yacht Grub (cooking), Yacht Pix (photography), and Yacht Crew Youth Dodgeball. The collaborative towel designs take inspiration from both coasts and brands, representing the intersection of visual language for both groups. Yacht Club: West, based on the concept of water from above, displays a silhouette of a land mass juxtaposed by ocean swells. Yacht Club: East zooms in closer and examines water from sea level, graphically showcasing the movement of the ocean. Both unique designs are woven, not printed, and produced in small batches. Once all towels are gone, they will never be woven again. Every towel is made in the U.S.A. To purchase yours and support this good cause hit this link http://theyachtclub.org/eryc-x-breezeway/
About the Yacht Club:The Yacht Club is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2008, focused on creating opportunities for low income and at-risk youth through the game of dodgeball, workshops, and mentorships. The organization currently runs four adult dodgeball leagues throughout Los Angeles–North Hollywood, Glassell Park, Highland Park, and Venice–and encourages their 400+ socially-minded members to join their efforts in getting active in their communities. Money raised through adult dodgeball leagues and tournaments is used to create original kids programs at each Rec Center.
After establishing the organization in Los Angeles over the past six years, the ERYC recently expanded to the Midwest with the addition of The Eagle Rock Yacht Club: Detroit.
