GIT Employees - Lee National Denim Day

GIT Employees - Lee National Denim DayToday is Denim Day, one of the largest single-day fundraisers for breast cancer in the USA. Since its inception in 1996, Lee National Denim Day has raised over $80 million for the fight against breast cancer.

Following the charity’s simple philosophy, “one day, one cause, one cure,” all of GIT employees were encouraged to wear jeans to work in exchange for a contribution to our preferred charity “Dreams for Danielle”.

All proceeds benefited the Sanucci family and helped towards the purchase of various items for the home.
