Young Girl with Leukemia Gets Support from Local Dutch Bros.
From Monday, March 10 through Friday, March 21 all Sacramento-area Dutch Bros. Coffee locations participated in "Shake it For Brooke," a fundraiser for 9-year-old Brooke Beaubier who was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
To raise funds, Dutch Bros. Coffee sold Dutch Frost shakes with proceeds resulting in $19,214. The proceeds benefit Brooke's treatment.
"I want to say thank you to everyone who chose to support this amazing little girl," said Dutch Bros. Woodland/Davis owner Sean Provost.
"I'm so happy to see everyone's support for me," said Brooke. "I hope that I can help someone else going through this in the future. I think Dutch Bros. is fun, I really want to work there one day."
Brooke's treatment continues and her spirits are high. She has been touched and surprised by the community support. From her neighborhood welcoming her home by lining the streets, to California Highway Patrol rallying for her, and to all who participated in Dutch Bros'. "Shake it For Brooke," she has been lifted by the wonderful outpour of love from so many people.
"We still continue to receive support in all forms and I still struggle to be able to convey with everyone just how thankful we are," said Brooke's mom Timilyn Beaubier. "The 'Shake it for Brooke' campaign that Dutch Bros. put together was a huge success and meant a lot to us."
"It was a great privilege to be able to help with this cause," said Dutch Bros. Auburn/Rocklin owner Jeremy Mauel.
Donation days like these are standard practice for local owners Steve and Nikol Grubbs, Jeremy and Heather Mauel, Brian and Mattie Place, and Sean and Lynsey Provost, who own the Sacramento, Auburn/Rocklin, Granite Bay, and Woodland/Davis Dutch Bros. Coffee locations. Since the first stand opened in the Sacramento-area in 2004, they have collectively given back over $200,000 to local causes.
"It was absolutely amazing meeting Brooke and her family," said Dutch Bros. Granite Bay owner Brian Place. "The love, compassion, optimism, and energy that the family and community has given is absolutely unbelievable."
"We are so blessed that Dutch Bros. gives us the opportunity to help such a brave and beautiful little lady," said Dutch Bros. Citrus Heights and NE Sacramento owner Nikol Grubbs.
Dutch Bros. Coffee gives over $1 million annually company-wide to local causes and nonprofit organizations as part of its goal of "Making a Difference, One Cup at a Time."
