BASKING RIDGE, NJ and NEW YORK — This holiday season, Verizon Wireless is proud to announce its partnership with international fashion brand, Club Monaco, to create the ultimate holiday gift — a fashionable accessory case designed exclusively for the best-selling mobile phone - the Chocolate by LG.

In keeping with the holiday spirit, 100 percent of all proceeds from the Verizon Wireless-Club Monaco case will go to the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) Fund, a nationwide organization dedicated to providing public education and community tools to help end domestic violence. Verizon Wireless has long been recognized as a corporate leader working to prevent domestic violence and raise awareness of the issue through the company's HopeLine® phone recycling program.

The perfect complement for the Chocolate by LG phone, the carrying case is chic, unisex and functional at the same time. Made of black Italian leather, the case features a sleek, detachable pouch for earphones, a braided matching phone cord, and matte nickel hardware.

The Club Monaco case for Verizon Wireless will be available for $39.00 each, beginning December 3rd for a limited time only at select Club Monaco stores, including flagship stores in New York and Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas. Already a favorite among Hollywood starlets such as Laguna Beach's Kristin Cavalleri, Bad Boy's Gabrielle Union, and fashion maven, Angie Harmon, the Chocolate by LG fits perfectly in the stylish case available only at Club Monaco.

Fashion forward, yet meeting all the technological needs of the Verizon Wireless customer, the Chocolate features Bluetooth® headset capability, access to V CAST Music and video, 1.3 megapixel camera/camcorder, microSDTM Memory Port, and touch-sensitive navigation keys.
