July 16, 2012 // Franchising.com // Grants Pass, Ore. — July 21st, 2012, at 2 p.m., Dutch Bros. Coffee is working with the City of Grants Pass and Extreme Board Shop to host an exhibition by world-renowned skateboarding professional Tony Hawk, who will be skating at the Grants Pass Skatepark as part of the Birdhouse Left Coast Tour.

ALL proceeds from Dutch Bros. drink sales will go to Youth Empowerment Support Services (YESS), a nonprofit based in Cave Junction, Ore., that is working toward raising funds to build a skatepark there. The goal of the project is to provide local kids with a free, safe place where they can go and engage in a fun, skill-building activity.

The Dutch Bros. crew will be there with a drink cart, giving away FREE Dutch. Bros. Blue Rebel™ energy drinks and selling 16-oz. smoothies, freezes and water at discounted prices, with all proceeds going to YESS.

Other top skateboarders skating in the tour include Shaun Gregoire, Shawn Hale, Clive Dixon, Willy Santos, Aaron Homoki, Kevin Staab, David Loy and Clint Walker.

More than 700 spectators are expected to attend. The regular parking lot will be closed during the event, but a large vacant lot to the north, off SE Mill St., will be open for public parking.

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.
