The actor Patrick Dempsey, very well known for his role as a handsome neurosurgeon in the successful series “Grey's Anatomy”, has been a great Frauenschuh fan for years. On the occasion of the Hahnenkamm Race he visited our store in Kitzbühel and took his time to meet the family and the team.
“Main focus on quality”
In a relaxed atmosphere, Patrick Dempsey was able to get a good impression of Frauenschuh and was very enthusiastic about it, “What a great family owned company! I love that their main focus is the quality of their products, and to make long lasting clothing.” He praised the fact that for him a special energy could be felt in every piece of clothing. “It is so nice to see the craftsmanship and the humanity behind the brand in person,” said the actor.
Love for sport and charity
Talking to Patrick, it quickly became clear how many interests and values the very kind Hollywood star shares with Frauenschuh; above all his commitment to charity projects and his love for sports. In 2008, the actor, whose mother had died of cancer ten years earlier, opened an information centre for cancer patients and their families. He is also engaged in philanthropic work for cancer support.
In addition to his acting career, Patrick Dempsey pursues his ambitions as an active race car driver in his spare time. At the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans he achieved the fourth place. It was also his enthusiasm for sport which led him to Kitzbühel and to Frauenschuh. Patrick’s visit was a great pleasure and honour for us!
