Dutch Bros. Coffee Partners with Muscular Dystrophy Association to Fuel the Fight Against ALS

Coffee Company Hosts Annual MDA Day on May 4; All Locations Donate Proceeds in Honor of Dutch Bros. Co-Founder

Tempe, AZ, April 26, 2012 --(PR.com)-- On Friday, May 4, Dutch Bros. Arizona Coffee Drive-Thru locations will host MDA Day, an event aimed at donating to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. Customers can do their part by simply ordering their favorite Dutch Bros. beverage - coffee and smoothies are just the beginning - and the company will donate proceeds from each sale.

The event, which kicks off ALS Awareness Month, is held annually in honor of company co-founder, Dane Boersma, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2005 and passed away in late 2009. Last year, Dutch Bros. Arizona donated $5,900 while Dutch Bros. as a whole contributed a record-breaking $137,000 to MDA for research and family services funding.

Who: Dutch Bros. Coffee AZ
