Beaverton, Ore. - Dutch Bros. Coffee Donating 30% of Sales to Beaverton Man's Bone Marrow Transplant10-Dec-2012 ** Download Photo of Luis Lopez **
Beaverton, Ore. (Dec. 10, 2012) – On Monday, Dec. 17, your daily cup of joe can help save a life.
All that day, from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., the Beaverton Dutch Bros. Coffee stand at 8940 SW Hall Blvd. will donate 30% of gross sales to help beloved regular customer and Beaverton resident Luis Lopez raise money to pay for a much-needed bone marrow transplant.
Luis was diagnosed with leukemia about one year ago, and, where other methods of treatment have failed, a costly bone marrow transplant may save his life.
“When Luis got sick about a year ago, we were really concerned,” say local owner-operators Tina Thompson and Mike Gonzales. “He’s been coming to our stand since we opened four years ago, and we’ve always joked that we’re family. They’re good people who work really hard, and we want to help.”
Without health insurance, the transplant will cost about $500K, not including the hospital stay or post-operative care.
Please come out on Dec. 17 and support a local family in need. We will also have jars available for additional donations to the cause.
Donations may also be made to the “Luis Lopez Bone Marrow Fundraiser” at any U.S. Bank.
