Hanes has been connected with the David Lash-Chronicle tournament for over a decade.  They provide sweatshirts free of charge to all of the team players and coaches.  They will also set up donation spots for their sock drive in each high school and the school that has the most donations will receive a donation from Hanes, for their Junior Varsity basketball team.

Hanes, America’s No.1 apparel brand is a leading brand of intimate apparel, underwear, sleepwear, socks and causal apparel.  Hanes products can be found at leading retailers nationwide and online direct to consumers at  Hanes is a flagship brand of Hanesbrands Inc.

“Here at Hanes we’ve been long standing supporters of the Lash-Chronicle tournament and the reason why is simple.  It represents all that is best about our Winston-Salem community which is the value of hard work, dedication and being a part of a team,” said Cheryl E. Lindsay, Director of Human Resources- Global Diversity & Inclusion/Global Community Engagement for Hanes.

“These teenagers are really the future and we want them to know that they’re valued and that we really care about what they accomplish.  This is a tournament we look forward to every year.  It’s both exciting and inspiring and we are thrilled to have the chance to be a part of it,” Lindsay continued.

Director of the Lash-Chronicle tournament since its inception, Robert Wynn, says he has really enjoyed the support of Hanes throughout the years.

He said the kids really enjoy the hoodies especially the ones with “champion” printed on the front.  He wanted to thank Hanes for their continued participation in the tournament.

The coaches and players are very appreciative of Hanes for the donations as well.  Walkertown head coach Charles Thomas says he still has his hoodie from years ago and is proud to wear it.

“You definitely need sponsors when you have any type of large event going on and with it being Hanesbrand which is local and homegrown, you’re definitely glad they are a part of it,” Thomas said.  “It means a lot to those kids to have those sweatshirts because you see the pride the JV players walk around with when they have that David Lash sweatshirt on.  To have Hanes, a name that’s recognizable and one of the top brands out there in the industry, it means a lot to be able to wear that.”
