It is with a heavy heart that I must share this news with you — our beloved dog, best friend and brand mascot Levi has lost his battle with brain cancer. Levi has been an integral part of our family for the past decade and we miss him dearly. As I walk the streets of our neighborhood, I still feel his leash in my hand and hear his heavy breathing — but my hand is now empty and I’m left with the feeling that an important part of me is missing. Everywhere Levi went he brought smiles to peoples’ faces. His admirers would stop by our store on a daily basis, just to say hello to him. I take some comfort in knowing that he will be immortalized in our brand imagery, having consistently made appearances on hats, shirts, and accessories season after season. Levi, you were the best friend anyone could have asked for… rest in peace.
I’m not going to lie… 2017 was tough. We had a few wins but even more loses. As I sit here and reflect on this past year, I am going to take those loses and learn from them to make 2018 great! Thank you to everyone that supported me since day one, when I quit my corporate design job to follow my passion and to those who have joined me on my journey to build the Benny Gold brand since. From a single sticker posted around SF, I am thankful and grateful that we have grown globally. I’m wishing everyone the best this 2018 and can’t wait to see what is next - stay gold!
