Friday, May 2, is “Drink One for Dane” Day, when more than 215 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in seven states will donate proceeds to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The association also helps fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
The event kicks off ALS Awareness Month and is held annually in honor of company co-founder Dane Boersma, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2005 and died in late 2009.
Last year, Dutch Bros. contributed $271,500 to MDA for research and family services funding.
Local locations are at 980 W. Olive Drive in Davis and 1332 E. Main St. in Woodland.
