John Ratzenberger, the actor who portrayed Cliff Clavin on “Cheers,” launches a crowdfunding campaign on FundAnything.com to raise funds for a “John Ratzenberger’s American Made,” reality series that will explore manufacturing in America. Montauk Tackle Company will be a featured American Made Manufacturer of the new show highlighting their Performance Fishing Shirts and accessories.
“American Made will feature American manufacturing from all around the country, and interviews with factory owners, workers, suppliers and end users to get a good look at what goes into manufacturing today,” said Ratzenberger. “Nothing happens in business until somebody builds something.”
His FundAnything campaign will cover all production costs for the first five episodes of his series. Visitors to AmericanMade have several contribution levels to choose from, each with its own personal incentives ranging from recording John’s voice on your voice mail to receiving a signed copy of a script from Cheers and even receiving a producers credit on the series.
“Ratzenberger, is a passionate proponent of manufacturing in America, and I believe as he does that the country must restore admiration for our skilled labor force and quality of goods that will in turn stimulate our economy,” says Ron Cesark President Montauk Tackle Company, Inc.
All of MTC’s performance fishing shirts are manufactured in the Garment District of New York City and incorporate a 50UPF sun protection, moisture wicking transporters for quick drying, stain release technologies and an anti-microbial treatment that prevents odor-causing microbes. Built for performance and comfort in Men’s, Women’s and youth styles.
