Every day, Action Against Hunger’s international network of more than 4,600 professionals and technical experts work tirelessly to save the lives of acutely malnourished children. But keeping victims from some of the world’s most far-flung regions in the public eye is an ongoing challenge, and that’s why Ultimat Vodka has become such an indispensable ally in our efforts to raise awareness and funds to fight global hunger.
Ultimat has partnered with ACF for an array of promotions – providing super-premium spirits and signature cocktails for our Annual Benefit Gala in New York City, as well as underwriting print advertisements in Bon Appetit, Saveur, Bazaar, Food & Wine, and the New York Times Magazine. Ultimat also donated proceeds from unique wrist bracelets that carried the message "I'm Tired of Hunger."
ACF’s Director of External Relations Geoffrey Glick said, “The support and generosity of Ultimat has been crucial to helping ACF communicate its mission to new audiences. A great example of this is Ultimat’s sponsorship of a 15-second video public service announcement that’s currently being broadcast on the CBS Super Screen above 42nd Street in New York City. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
Ed Blinn, Global Commercial Director of Ultimat’s parent corporation, Patron Spirits Company, added, “It’s one thing to read about it, but my recent visit to ACF’s intervention in Kenya gave me an even deeper appreciation for this organization’s lifesaving work. Ultimat is proud to be a corporate partner of Action Against Hunger. “
