Dutch Bros. Coffee and Indubious Teaming up to Fight Cystic Fibrosis
"Breathe Deep": Friday, June 29th, 2012, Noon - 10 p.m. Riverside Park
June 27, 2012 // Franchising.com // Grants Pass, Ore. - June 29th, 2012, Dutch Bros. Coffee is sponsoring a FREE benefit concert at Riverside Park featuring reggae band Indubious.
ALL proceeds from Dutch Bros. drink sales and other on-site activities will go to “Breathe Deep” causes.
Seventy percent of proceeds will benefit the Sparrow Club’s Keira Pfeiffer, a four-year-old girl who battles cystic fibrosis, and thirty percent will go toward the Williams Community Forest Project.
The Dutch Bros. crew will be there with a mobile unit, serving up Dutch. Bros. Blue Rebel™ energy drinks, smoothies, freezes and, as always, fun. There will also be food vendors on-site.
Other activities at the family-friendly event include a bounce house and face painting. The event and activities are free, but attendees are asked to bring money for donation to the worthy causes represented.
Evan and Spencer Burton, Indubious’s two front men and brothers, both live with cystic fibrosis and are “trying to help out a family going through a similar thing,” says Evan. Evan underwent a double lung transplant just one year ago.
Cystic fibrosis, or CF, is an inherited, progressive, and life-threatening multisystem disease, which primarily affects the respiratory and digestive systems. CF causes irreversible damage to the lungs and is also characterized by chronic malabsorption of nutrients, which leads to chronic malnutrition and growth issues.
Dutch Bros. Coffee gives back one percent of gross sales to its communities. In 2011, the company donated more than $1 million to nonprofit organizations including local food banks, Muscular Dystrophy Association, American Cancer Society, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and many other organizations.
Indubious describe themselves as “intergalactic reggae revolutionaries,” whose primary goal is “to be the bridge between the needy people and the sources which are needed.” For more information on Indubious, visit www.indubiousmusic.com.
