"Drink One For Dane" Fundraiser at Dutch Bros Locations

Today, May 11th Dutch Bros is having a large fundraiser called, "Drink One for Dane," to raise money for ALS.
It is their largest fundraising event of the year where all of their proceeds from every location across the country goes back to MDA. One of their co-founders, Dane, died of ALS and was treated at an MDA clinic so they are huge MDA supporters. Last year it raised over $1 million in one day and with how rapidly Dutch Bros is expanding, we can't wait to see how it will do this year!
