In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all Dutch Bros locations partnered with their communities to raise $220,000 for the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and Albie Aware in support of the advancement of breast cancer research and services for patients.
“We’re stoked to be able to contribute to the continued research and services that these wonderful organizations provide,” said Travis Boersma, Co-founder Dutch Bros Coffee.
During the entire month of October, Dutch Bros locations donated $5 from the sale of each specialty “Be Aware” travel mug to raise funds. The sales were in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness month, and each purchase provided an opportunity to increase awareness of this disease and its impact on those fighting it.
“We’d like to thank Dutch Bros and the Dutch Bros community for their continued support of our effort to fight breast cancer,” said Arpana Naik, M.D., associate professor for surgery in the OHSU School of Medicine and breast surgical oncologist for the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. “Raising over $200,000 in just one month is an impressive feat, and those dollars will support the research and treatment underway here to make a difference for our patients across the state affected by this disease.”
Dutch Bros locations across seven states raised $203,800 for the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. The funds donated will support their research into treatment and preventative methods for breast cancer detection. They take an individual, personalized approach with each patient’s care, utilizing cutting-edge technologies, including DNA specific drugs and radiation therapies.
Dutch Bros locations in Sacramento raised $16,200 for Albie Aware, a local non-profit organization that works to bring awareness, while also focusing on support services for breast cancer patients. Funds raised will directly benefit Albie Aware as they provide life-saving education, testing, patient advocacy and compassionate care for individuals facing or fighting breast cancer.
