NEW YORK, June 25, 2013
NEW YORK, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Hennessy, the number one selling
Cognac brand in the world, continues its "Never Stop, Never Settle" campaign
by honoring one of baseball's greatest Latino legends: Roberto Clemente.
Centered on the notion that true greatness is reserved for those who have
reached a level of mastery yet still push the limits of their potential, the
"Never Stop, Never Settle" program draws parallels among the journeys of
leading icons in various fields and the paths being forged by Hennessy
Approaching the biggest day in baseball, Hennessy is honoring two stellar
athletes who paved a path towards greatness and inspired other Latinos to
become sports sensations. To continue its commitment, Hennessy will hold a
private celebration at the exclusive Parlor in New York Cityon Thursday, June
27 with the Clemente Museum and legendary baseball player Orlando Cepeda.
"It's an honor to partner with Hennessy," said Cepeda. "Latinos fought hard to
be at the forefront of baseball. Someone like Clemente made great strides and
helped pave my own career. Today, Latino talent has nearly become synonymous
with America's favorite pastime. We definitely have an innate drive to 'never
stop, never settle.'"
On Thursday, June 27 items from the Clemente Museum will leave Pittsburgh for
the first time in history for Hennessy's curated exhibition. More than 40
pieces from the museum's collection will be on display in New York City for
one night only. The collection celebrates Clemente's legacy and will take fans
through his courageous career in baseball.
"We are excited that the collection is able to travel to New York City through
the support of Hennessy," says Duane Rieder, the Museum Director at the
Clemente Museum. "The ability to share these inspiring objects and images
outside of Pittsburgh is a testament to Hennessy's commitment to celebrating
and sharing the rich history of Latinos in sports."
Hennessy was first introduced to Latin America in 1860 when the first shipment
of Cognac arrived in Mexico. Hennessy's relationship with Latino culture
continued to flourish beyond Latin America and into the U.S. Hispanic
community through unwavering support of arts, culture and athleticism.
