San Diego Padres Game Giveaway!
We are super fired up to be chosen to be the promotional sponsor for the Padres game on May 8, 2022 (Mother's Day) featuring our kids sunglasses! The first 8,000 kids in attendance will receive Padres-branded Roshambo sunglasses, perfect for sunny days at Petco Park!
Being a lifelong Padres fan, and having the inspiration for the business come while sitting in the outfield at Petco Park, this is a particular dream come true for our CEO, Scott Morris.
"We hope this partnership is a jumping off point for the next phase of our business' growth and exposure both in our hometown and on a national level," said Scott Morris, CEO and Cofounder of Roshambo Eyewear. "Despite all of our successes to date, we are still very much a small family company with a long way to go. Here's to the future (and go Padres)!"
Another exciting part of the May 8 Padres game is that it is one of the elite KidsFest days, with bounce houses and other inflatables, games, face painters, balloon artists and other kid-friendly activities in Gallagher Square! The festivities start two hours prior to first pitch.
Donating Prescription Glasses to Families in Need
Roshambo Eyewear has also partnered with the Padres to donate prescription glasses to San Diego families in need. That's something to cheer about! We are so happy to be helping out our local community, and will be partnering with local organizations as well as our own customers in need to find the perfect candidates. We recently donated a pair of Roshambo prescription glasses to Nick Smith, one of the world's smallest men and new superfan of Roshambo! If you know a San Diego family in need, please let us know!
What Makes Roshambo Frames so Different?
When our founders Scott & Julia started this company, it seemed strange to them that nearly all high quality adult sunglasses were made in Italy, but basically all kids sunglasses were made cheaply. Why can't kids have high quality shades too?? After about 2 years of searching, we found a independent, family owned Italian sunglasses manufacturer with a background in toy manufacturing.
When we told them we wanted flexible, child-safe, ultra-light, virtually unbreakable frames, but they could not have any toxins, including: BPA, lead, latex, phthalate, cadmium, etc etc, they understood why we demanded that and how to make it happen. They were able to custom blend a perfect formula for us that is what we have used ever since. As far as we know, we are still the only kids sunglasses line made in Italy and assembled in the United States.
We also believe in removing all unnecessary paint in our product as it just winds up in little mouths! We injection dye all of our colors (that is why you will not see designs or tortoise shell pattern on our frames - just color blocks). This process locks in all the color into the material so it cannot leach out. We also build our logos into our molds, so our name does not have to be painted on. Our logo is laser etched on our lenses instead of painted as well. In fact, the only paint on our product is the required "Made in Italy" stamp and product name. We are even starting to make our frames out of recycled materials - and produced over 30,000 pairs in 2021
