14th Annual Hat Day in the Sun
Ninety percent of all skin cancers are caused by sun exposure, and the right sun protection hat is essential summer protection. For the past fourteen years, The Headwear Association (THA) has hosted Hat Day in the Sun, a national public awareness campaign, aimed at educating adults and children that the right hat can protect against skin cancer and premature skin damage.
For more than a decade, THA Platinum Sponsors have given away thousands of wide-brimmed sun protection hats across the country in cities including: New York City, NY; Stockton, CA; Boulder, CO; Philadelphia, PA; Lancaster, PA; and Santa Cruz, CA. For the past two years, Hat Day in the Sun has been an social media giveaway event due to Covid.
The free sun protection hats were generously provided by Dorfman Milano, Bollman Hat Company Wallaroo Hats and Broner Hats.
Special thanks to our supportive THA sponsors and retailers who partnered with us and co-hosted Hat Day in the Sun giveaways on their Instagram pages this year: Harlem’s Heaven Hats, Hats in the Belfry, Hats.com, Broner Hats, Wallaroo Hat Company, Dorfman Milano and Bollman Hat Company.
