Nikwax®, the global leader in aftercare products for outdoor performance gear and apparel for 40 years, is celebrating POW and The Conservation Alliance by throwing the biggest happy hour raffle OR has ever seen. Over 30 outdoor brands are participating in the 3-day event that starts at 3:30 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (days 1-3). $10 gets you a special edition stainless steel Klean Kanteen pint filled with beer and 10 raffle tickets (additional tickets will be available for purchase). Each day the keg is tapped at 3:30, and the epic raffle begins shortly thereafter. If you don’t win Day 1, fear not! Your raffle tickets (and beer refills) carry over to Day 2 and 3. Over $10,000 worth of gear will be up for grabs with all proceeds benefitting POW and The Conservation Alliance.

“With the blatant attack on America’s public lands right now, it’s more important than ever to get involved and support the organizations that are doing impactful work,” said Brian Davidson, Nikwax North America’s President. “We’ve been involved with POW and The Conservation Alliance for years and the amount of work each does is impressive. From raising awareness of critical issues and educating folks on how to get involved, to having a regular presence in D.C., we’re proud to be able to put this raffle of epic proportions together in their honor. And a big thank you to the 30+ brands that are joining us!”

About Nikwax
Nikwax® was founded in 1977 by Nick Brown, an avid hiker and traveler, who designed his own waterproofing wax to keep his leather mountain boots dry. Today, Nikwax is the trusted global leader in environmentally safe aftercare solutions. Nikwax products extend the performance life of technical clothing, footwear and equipment.  Most recently, the company launched Nikwax Hydrophobic Down (NHD), the leading PFC-free hydrophobic down that performs to the highest level of testing, the 1000 minute shake test. Nikwax products are fluorochemical-free, use advanced elastomer technology, are not tested on animals, and are non-persistent in the environment. The company is ISO 9001 and 14001 certified and is the only major aftercare line to have never used aerosols or fluorocarbons.  For media inquiries and more information, please contact Kate Ketschek at Revolution House Media, 603-828-1050 or kate@revolutionhousemedia.com.
