Florida dog rescue that holds events at Trump properties clarifies Nike policy

This entry was posted in News on by .


PALM BEACH, Fla. ‘ Early Thursday afternoon, Big Dog Ranch Rescue clarified a no-Nike ban, saying it was a ‘personal offer’ by the founder and not an employee policy.

Complete story. Original media available.

Big Dog Ranch Rescue president Lauree Simmons initially instituted a ban on the company’s apparel because of the brand’s sponsorship of anthem protestor Colin Kaepernick.

Thursday morning, it was reported that Big Dog president Lauree Simmons had banned the sneaker and apparel brand from the campus of the Loxahatchee Groves dog rescue organization, which counted President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump as a co-chair of a March 10 luncheon at Mar-a-Lago. Two upcoming Big Dog fundraisers are planned for Trump properties in Palm Beach and Jupiter.

Big Dog workers said they were forbidden from wearing the brand on campus, and if they were found wearing Nike sneakers, they would be sent home.

Out On the Town: DC arts & entertainment ‘ September 13

A filmed version of the recent Broadway stage musical, adapted from the 1951 film. Director Christopher Wheeldon, who snagged a Tony for Best Choreographer for his efforts, wisely retained much of Gene Kelly’s moves from the movie, most notably the 17-minute ballet set to the first composition that George Gershwin titled “An American in Paris.” Wheeldon cast Robert Fairchild of the New York City Ballet and Leanne Cope of the British Royal Ballet. The pair, also nominated for Tonys for their work, returned to the show last year for a West End debut. And it’s a taped performance from the London run that will grace movie screens next week. Thursday, Sept. 20, at 7 p.m
