Things Got Ugly on Fox & Friends June 03 2013

 

Well, it's officially become another holiday tradition, as "Team Ugly", Adam, Kevin and myself made our fourth consecutive appearance on Fox & Friends this weekend, but with a twist - things got ugly LIVE in their New York studios! This was our first time visiting their NYC studios, as we have traditionally just done a satellite feed from Chicago, so it was up close, in person and even more UGLY!

There's nothing more exciting this time of year than to see hundreds of thousands of people from all over the globe come to view the Christmas decorations and lights in New York City!  The highlight was seeing the Christmas tree lit up at 30 Rockefeller Plaza - simply amazing! Certainly motivated us to make this season of ugly Christmas sweaters the best yet!

If you missed our segment, be sure to check out the replay below, as we were honored to help kick off the StandUp2Cancer (SU2C) new campaign called "Hey Cancer It's Gonna Get Ugly!" - Not only are we excited to announce and promote the campaign, but we've also decided to participate and set the goal to raise $10,000 this December! 

You can learn more and participate in our fundraising drive, by visiting our dedicated page and join "Team Ugly" 


2012 Recap & 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party December 30 2012


Our 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party was a huge success and a great way to end the 2012 season!  We had such a great turnout - the bar was packed, the bowling lanes were full as hundreds of our friends, family and complete strangers gathered wearing their ugliest and tackiest Christmas sweaters to have a great time and raise money for StandUp2Cancer.  We're proud to say that with the help of over 20 local businesses and all those in attendance, we generated over $800 worth of raffle prizes and over $500 in cash donations!

Thank you so much to all of our customers and business partners that helped make 2012 another record year!  Without you all, we'd just be three guys in a warehouse filled with wool, cotton and synthetic blend materials - THANK YOU!

We wish you all the best in 2013! 

Cheers, 

Team Ugly - Adam, Brian & Kevin
