(Jackson Hole, WY â€“ July 21, 2011) Mountain KhakisÂ®, a leading mountain-inspired lifestyle apparel brand, announces Outdoor Retailer Summer Market fundraiser, Drop Your Pants for Charity and the Howl at the Moon Best Bum Contest.
Mountain Khakis is partnering with Z2 Marketing and the Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition (OIWC) in the non-profit fundraiser, Drop Your Pants for Charity and the Howl at the Moon Best Bum Contest.

Here’s how it will work:
1.On Friday, August 5th, donate $20 to the OIWC and get a $75 gift card for MK. OIWC volunteers will be on hand to accept donations, educate folks on the OIWC, and share in the good times had by step #2â€¦
2.Enter Howl at the Moon for a chance to win a $150 MK gift cardâ€¦ have a picture snapped of your moon (full or partial nudity, full or partial-clothing), and we’ll upload it the Howl at the Moon photo gallery at www.mountainkhakis.com/howl

4.On August 22nd, the bum with the most votes will receive a $150 gift card from MK
According to Jen Taylor, Director of Creative Development for Mountain Khakis, â€œWe like zany ideas that mobilize people around a good cause. We chose the OIWC as this promotion’s beneficiary primarily because MK is a corporate member, and the women and men of MK are individual members â€“ we support their mission. But it also aligns with the exciting launch of our new S12 Women’s collection, and our commitment to the Women’s category.â€
â€œWhen MK and Z2 approached us with the idea, we loved it,â€ said Hillary Harding, Development Director for the OIWC. â€œOIWC is a professional organization that provides education and resources for women at all levels. That said, we have not shied away from events that challenge taboos, like Ramp it Up, or our upcoming ad campaign. Drop Your Pants for Charity will be a fun and playful way to educate more Outdoor Industry folks on OIWC’s presence and purpose, and to do some fundraising.â€
â€œAs a member and volunteer of the OIWC for several years, I loved this idea,â€ stated Dawn Finnegan, Vice-President of Client Services for Z2 Marketing. â€œIn partnering with Jen and the Mountain Khakis’ team on this OR promotion, our Z2 team is having a lot of fun with the creativity and playfulness. All the while we’re proud to support the OIWC.â€
