LeBow senior and Scholly founder Christopher Gray says his company has made its biggest deal to date with a new organization called My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.

Technical.ly Philly reports that “The Alliance, which [President Barack] Obama launched earlier this week, is backed by corporations like Deloitte, PepsiCo and Sprint to the tune of $80 million and and aims to create opportunities for young men of color.” The article also says Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter was appointed to the alliance’s advisory council.

A Forbes article calls the deal “a huge move for Gray….”

“They asked if we’d be interested,” Gray told Forbes. “Obviously, we weren’t going to turn down the chance to work with the White House.”

Gray is expected to graduate from LeBow next month.
