Oris x Watchonista Host A Movember Event In New York City

Oris And Watchonista Host An Evening To Celebrate Movember In New York City

Last week, Oris and Watchonista hosted a Movember themed evening at Freemans Sporting Club. The barbershop turned luxury menswear boutique served as the perfect backdrop for this special evening for charity.

As you may have read on Watchonista (HERE and HERE) November is Movember month. We're lucky to partner with our friends at Oris to help spread the word and raise awareness for this very special men's health cause. To cap off our collaboration, we recently hosted a unique evening for the Movember charity. On a rainy night in New York City over 100 guests attended our cocktail soiree and charity raffle. In total, we raised thousands of dollars for Movember and presented the charity in a unique way that only Watchonista can do!

Special thanks to Freemans Sporting Club on the lower east side for hosting our event. What better way to present Movember than a barbershop and menswear salon! Guests were treated to a tasting of Glenfiddich Scotch Whisky and beer and wine served by bartender extraordinaire Luis!

Throughout the evening, we collected donations via a dedicated donation page on Movember.com.  For every $10 donated, guests were given a raffle ticket to participate in a charity raffle at the end of the evening. In all, we gave away five excellent gifts, an Oris Chronoris Movember Edition, A custom suit by Freemans Sporting Club, an Analog/Shift canvas tote, a bottle of Glenfiddich 18, and noise-canceling headphones by Freemans Sporting Club. Many thanks to our generous sponsors and friends for the donations!
