JUPITER, Florida (November 4, 2015) – SKIMP, a lifestyle collection of fashionable, colorful accessories to be worn on or off the golf course, will serve as a sponsor of the 2015 Veterans Putting Challenge, to take place Nov. 9 in conjunction with the VGA (Veterans Golf Association) National Championship being SKIMPheld at Pinehurst Country Club, in Pinehurst, N.C., and the activities to be held on Veterans Day (Nov. 11). SKIMP will donate four “La Courageuse” sport watches, designed in France, to be used as prizes at the event.

“We are happy to provide these SKIMP watches to this year’s Veterans Putting Challenge,” said Laurent-Alix Huguet, CEO of H4Distribution. “We appreciate the veterans’ contributions and are glad to help support this fine event.”

Funds raised from the Veterans Putting Challenge will be disbursed solely to the over 1,000 disabled and needy veterans and their families who reside in Moore County, N.C. The event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Edwin Cottrell, of Henderson, N.C., was a founder of the Veterans Putting Challenge. The inaugural event was held in 2013 at Mid Pines Inn and Golf Club in Southern Pines, N.C.

“We are proud that each year the Veterans Putting Challenge continues to support our fine veterans of Moore County,” Dr. Cottrell said. “We greatly respect their service and sacrifice.”

The VGA ( is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to promoting the game of golf to veterans and their family members. The VGA develops programs that allow members to compete, socialize and remain physically active through golf.

Created by a team of young trendsetters in Lyon, France, SKIMP is a collection of stylish, colorful everyday accessories for men and women. With SKIMP, the ordinary becomes extraordinary. The first SKIMP item introduced was a buckleless belt, the result of a misadventure with a standard belt in an airport security line. The belts, metal free, uni-sex and available in 20 color choices, are an avant-garde fashion statement. Lightweight and adjustable, they come in playful packaging. Next came the SKIMP watch, waterproof and designed for men and women. Available in 16 colors and several styles, the watches feature bracelets and cases of matte silicone and a black sheen background. With evocative style names, accurate technology and irresistible panache, SKIMP watches keep the time and set the tone. The SKIMP bag, attractive and functional, comes in a complete range of colors and styles, from toiletry bag to travel bag. Featuring vivid Tarpaulin fabric and cotton handles, SKIMP bags can be mixed and matched with clothing and other accessories. To help protect the planet by reducing pollution, SKIMP products are composed of recycled materials.
