A&F Challenge + Giveaway

A fundraising summer camp with live music? We’re there!

Looking for one last outdoor event to send off summer in style? We’ve got the perfect suggestion! Once a year, Abercrombie and Fitch throws the A&F Challenge, which is an event that marries the fun of summer camp, outdoor music festivals, and charity fund-raising into one fall evening on their woodsy, sprawling campus. This year’s party benefits the SeriousFun Children’s Network, so you get to have fun for a good cause! The family-friendly event is happening on Friday, September 8 and includes about a hundred different things for everyone to enjoy — from eating to exercise to live music, you’ll be busy the whole night!

And did we mention we have two tickets for the #anfchallenge to giveaway? Keep reading!

The party kicks off with a 5k fun run that is open to anyone who purchases a ticket to the event. Walk, run or cartwheel for a good cause, or just to burn off a few calories before you, um, re-energize with a s’more or seven. Later in the night, circle up with your buddies to catch the show from the Strumbellas and later Bastille. Nothing says summer like live music under the stars!

When you’re not running, walking, or jamming along with the band, you can do what we like best — eat! The A&F Challenge features unlimited food that’s available around the clock, and the purchase of a VIP ticket gets you slightly fancier fare. The best part? Most of it is local! They’re bringing in some of our favorites, including Mikey’s Late Night Slice, Buckeye Donuts, and Tatoheads, in addition to fan favorites like Nothing Bundt Cakes and Ben & Jerry’s. Beer, wine, and cocktails will be available for those whose camp experience isn’t complete without sneaking behind the clubhouse for a nip of the harder stuff!

Have we not yet sold you with the promise of unlimited food and al fresco music? You’ll also be able to re-live your youth in Camp Fitch, a family-friendly zone featuring rock-climbing, archery, zip-lining, and an arts & crafts section. Kids even pay a reduced ticket and can access the rest of the party with you for free!

I’m sure we can all agree by now that this sounds like a rollicking good time, but don’t forget that this is all for a good cause. The event is designed to benefit the SeriousFun Children’s Network, an organization founded by Paul Newman that seeks to create a summer camp experience for kid’s with serious illnesses and their families. So you can feel good about your fun!

Wander & Whine can’t wait to attend the A&F Challenge, and we hope to see you there! Enter through the giveaway below for your own pair of tickets to join in all the fun!
