Suunto Rocks for Charity

Suunto teamed up with the Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHS) and other outdoor brands to bring Big Head Todd and the Monsters to this year's Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City. In addition to the show, one lucky winner took home a Suunto-customized Epiphone guitar.

Winter Market attendees who made a donation of $15 dollars or more to LHS got a ticket (worth $25) to see Big Head Todd and the Monsters play at the The Depot, an SLC hotspot. Before the show, the guys from the band came out to meet fans and encourage donations to the international charity, whose mission is to fight cancer through the power of music. Fans who went to the show said it was a lot of fun, and that Big Head Todd and the Monsters continue to put on fantastic live performances.

As part of the LHS fundraiser, guitar-maker Epiphone created customized axes for each sponsor. Market attendees entered to win the customized guitars by dropping their business card and a donation to LHS in the guitar case, then claimed their prize at the concert. Steve Nahomiak of United Knitting took home the coveted Suunto guitar. Check out the incredible detail on the Suunto guitar, which recreates a watch face on the guitar body.

All in all, a great weekend for Suunto, and an even better weekend for the Love Hope Strength Foundation, which raised a lot of money to fight cancer around the world.
