Joey Harrington Announces New Sneakers for Scholarships Fundraiser
PORTLAND, Ore. — The Harrington Family Foundation (HFF) recently announced the launch of a new fundraiser to benefit its scholarship-mentorship program. Sneakers for Scholarships is an online raffle featuring two pairs of very limited-edition Jordan Retro PE’s designed by Tinker Hatfield, legendary Nike shoe designer and a founding program mentor at Harrington Family Foundation.
The grand prize includes two pairs of Jordan Retro PE’s designed by Tinker Hatfield in their original Nike packaging, and Tinker Hatfield’s original artwork for both shoe designs. Grand prize retail value: $4500.
The Jordan 14’s in ‘Oregon Ducks’ colorway was gifted to the Oregon Ducks Football team for the 2022 Alamo Bowl and only 275 pairs were produced. The Jordan 14’s are signed by Tinker Hatfield. The Jordan 1’s were designed specifically for the Harrington Family Foundation by Tinker Hatfield in HFF’s color way. Only five pairs were produced. Both are very limited-edition Jordans, in men’s size 10.
“At its core, the Harrington Family Foundation scholarship program is based on building our Oregon community by recognizing and sharing the gifts—both financial and environmental—we have been given. Nothing embodies that idea more than this fundraiser. As a University of Oregon graduate and one of the original Harrington Family Foundation mentors, Tinker Hatfield has been part of our family from the beginning. A native Oregonian who has achieved worldwide success at an Oregon based company, Tinker has designed thousands of shoes for Nike, but none may have a more direct impact than the five pair he produced for us. I am humbled to have the support of a true Oregonian and thrilled to launch what I hope to be an incredibly successful fundraiser,” said Joey Harrington, President of the Harrington Family Foundation, and former NFL and University of Oregon quarterback.
