Younger Promotes Africa's First American Football Game
Topic: Sunglasses

According to a company news release, Younger Optics will support the Global Kilimanjaro Bowl in Tanzania – the first ever sanctioned American football game in Africa. The game will take place May 21, 2011, at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro. "Just as protective gear protects football players' bodies on the field, polarized Rx sunwear protects the eyes off the field. While in Tanzania, players from Drake University in Iowa and the Mexican National All Star Team will be performing a host of humanitarian duties as well as taking part in a hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro," says the company. "Throughout their stay in Tanzania, polarized Rx sunwear, equipped with NuPolar® and Drivewear® Transitions® SOLFX™ lenses from Younger Optics, will be part of the players' essential defense against blinding glare and harmful UV rays."

This announcement came about a month after Younger received three Awards of Excellence at the recent OLA Annual Meeting. Since winning the first ever OLA Award of Excellence in 1987, Younger Optics has received a total of 22 OLA Awards.
