As fans and customers gathered outside, Russel and Harrison joined fellow employees and members of the tournament staff to take photos and express their support for the hospital’s exceptional medical efforts provided to children with burns, orthopedic conditions, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate.

The staff members of the shop, which has become a tourist hot spot, pledged $1 of every t-shirt sold in the month of September to the Shriners Hospitals for Children for its continued dedication to providing advanced care, innovative research and outstanding teaching programs for children regardless of their ability to pay.
