It’s no secret that Oris – with its furry ambassador that loves to have a good time as much as anyone – is one of our favorite brands. So together, we threw a holiday party in Boston, Massachusetts, last night, where, in addition to serving up drinks and food, we also hosted a charity watch raffle to benefit The Home for Little Wanderers.

About The Home for Little Wanderers

The Home for Little Wanderers is one of the oldest charities aimed at helping abused, neglected, or at-risk children in the United States, having been part of the Boston landscape since 1799. And while it began its life as a home for children, it has grown today to offer a myriad of services to the community.

These services include behavioral and mental health services, residential care, family treatment and support, foster care and adoption, special education, and programs for older youth aging out of the system. And all of this is dedicated to the singular goal of helping children achieve success no matter the odds stacked against them.

The Party & Oris Sun Wukong Limited Edition

While the party officially began at 6 o’clock last evening, the Boston watch community turned out, with a few people arrived early in excitement. Fortunately, Oris Bear was decked out in his holiday best to provide some entertainment.

Throughout the evening, we sold over 115 raffle tickets for a chance to leave with an Oris Sun Wukong Limited Edition. Runners-up were also winners, however, receiving their own Oris Bear sweaters!

Couldn’t make it to Beantown? Check out our photo gallery below to see the watches, the good times, and all the smiling faces that make the watch community so great.

Thank you, Boston!
