The Ink Kitchen Wraps Up Lucky 13 Benefit in Sacramento


SACRAMENTO, Calif.—The Ink Kitchen wraps up its Lucky 13 Bash in Sacramento, California. Organizers held a charity event at Motion Textile, a nearby full-service contract apparel printer, on April 13 to raise funds for the Sacramento Food Bank.

Taking place following THE NBM SHOW in Sacramento, Ink Kitchen founders Rick Roth and Tom Davenport (also the owner of Motion Textile) helped generate more than $12,000 in donations toward the organization.

“None of this could have happened without the sponsorship and support of many companies from the decorated apparel industry,” state the organizers, citing a variety of sponsors such as apparel companies, industry publications, equipment manufacturers, and food and beverage distributors as integral to the success of the event.
