KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (Dec. 6, 2016) – On Tuesday, Nov. 29, Dutch Bros Klamath Falls rallied with its community on Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving, to raise $1,351 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants.
“St. Baldrick’s is grateful for the generous support of Dutch Bros Klamath Falls,” said Kathleen Ruddy, St. Baldrick’s CEO. “Thanks in part to Dutch Bros and the Klamath Falls community we surpassed our Giving Tuesday fundraising goal, raising more than $72,000. Because of communities like Klamath Falls, that have rallied together to support the Foundation’s mission, St. Baldrick’s will be able to fund ground-breaking research that will find cures and better treatments for all childhood cancers.”
The St. Baldrick’s Foundation believes kids are special and deserve to be treated that way. St. Baldrick’s funds are granted to some of the most brilliant childhood cancer research experts in the world and to innovative explorers who are working to give kids the healthy childhoods they deserve.
“We were so excited to come together with our community and support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation’s mission to conquer childhood cancers,” said Dutch Bros Klamath Falls owner, Kristen VonTersch.
To raise funds, Dutch Bros Klamath Falls donated $1 from every large drink sold on Giving Tuesday, as well as offered a 9-stamp loyalty card with every large drink purchase. Funds raised from this day will directly benefit the Foundation as they continue to fight childhood cancers and further research efforts.
