“With the help of our celebrity designers we’re hoping to draw people to our stores to learn more about VAIO and our commitment to cool design but, more importantly, to focus attention on this cause and the great work that America’s Second Harvest is doing,” said Mike Abary, vice president of VAIO product marketing for Sony Electronics in the U.S.

“During the holidays when people are enjoying the warmth of friends and family, the fact that there a more than 38 million Americans at risk of hunger becomes even more distressing,” said Robert H. Forney, president and CEO of America’s Second Harvest. “This is creative way to raise awareness of this critical issue and help make a difference.”
