IMPERIAL ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH SAVE MUNY
BOURBON, MO – Imperial Headwear, the #1 headwear brand at private golf facilities as recently reported by the Association of Golf Merchandisers (AGM) in the Member Survey the last 4 consecutive years, announced a new e-commerce fundraising partnership with Save Muny.
Save Muny is an initiative dedicated to saving Lions Municipal Golf Course in Austin, Texas from development. Save Muny aims to preserve Lions Municipal’s urban green space, civil rights history, and golf legacy for the enjoyment of future generations in the Austin community.
“Save Muny is excited and honored to have the support of Imperial as we move towards our goal,” said Noel Bridges, board member. “With every dollar raised as part of this limited edition release, Save Muny will invest in executing our final community outreach campaign.”
Imperial will offer a limited edition collection of custom Save Muny branded headwear and t-shirts on their website with a portion of the proceeds directed back to the Save Muny initiative.
“Imperial is pleased to be a small part of the Save Muny movement and to help increase public awareness about the course’s importance to the local community,” said Darren Schubert, Events & Key Account Manager at Imperial Headwear.
There will be four styles of headwear and one t-shirt option in the collection. Each product will showcase the classic Save Muny logo. Click HERE to view the entire Save Muny x Imperial Collection.

About Save Muny
Lions Municipal Golf Course has been a part of Austin for almost 100 years as the city’s oldest and most beloved public course. “Muny” is a treasured urban green space and was recently recognized as a nationally significant civil rights historical site as the first public course in the South to racially integrate. But Austin is in danger of losing this invaluable property to development.
Save Muny has worked since 1973 to preserve Lions Municipal Golf Course as an inclusive, affordable place for all Austinites to enjoy the game of golf and the outdoors. With public events and outreach campaigns, the Save Muny initiative continues to demonstrate the course’s intrinsic value to the Austin community and has helped to negotiate three lease extensions with the City of Austin.
