Klipsch is gearing up for strong Black Friday sales and, as part of that effort, the company is donating a portion of the proceeds to The Autumn Leaves Project, a nonprofit dedicated to aiding those battling pancreatic cancer.
The goal is to raise at least $20,000 from Thanksgiving Day to Giving Tuesday — Nov. 22-27.
The Autumn Leaves Project was founded in 2013 by legendary singer, songwriter, and producer Butch Walker. Walker founded the organization after his father passed away suddenly from pancreatic cancer to optimize the quality of life for those diagnosed. “Pancreatic cancer doesn’t give you a chance to reconcile with it, doesn’t let you make plans sometimes or prepare for the ending; it just usually sneaks up on you and gives you no warning until it’s too late,” says Walker.
Walker is the first featured artist in the Keepers of the Sound video series from Klipsch. He has performed with, written, and produced albums for various artists including Taylor Swift, Train, Pink, Avril Lavigne, Keith Urban and Katy Perry.
