BEVMO! ANNOUNCES CHARITABLE DONATION PROGRAM – ‘BEVMO! LOVES PETS’
Leading West Coast Adult Beverage Retailer to Donate Proceeds From Weekly Beer and Wine Tastings to Animal Charites Along the West Coast
Concord, CA (November 7, 2017) – Known for having the lion’s share of adult beverages, BevMo! will now help serve the four-legged community, as the leading West Coast adult beverage retailer announces its new charitable donation program, BevMo! Loves Pets.
BevMo! Loves Pets will take 100% of the proceeds from the company’s weekly wine and beer tastings in California and donate it to various pet charities across the West Coast. In Arizona and Washington, where state law doesn’t mandate a tasting fee, signage and donation boxes will be set up where customers can give as they wish.
The money raised will be donated quarterly and each store’s contributions will go to a local animal charity, as follows:
- • Northern California – Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation
- • Southern California – Lange Foundation
- • San Diego – San Diego Human Society
- • Arizona – Arizona Welfare League & SPCA
- • Washington – Humane Society Tacoma-Pierce County
The money will be used to help each charity as they service rescue animals with medical needs, rehabilitation, training, adoption and much more.
“As the neighborhood beverage store, it’s important we give back to the people we serve, which includes our four-legged friends,” said Dimitri Haloulos, CEO of BevMo!. “We are most excited to be helping these wonderful animal organizations and we’re sure our customers are, too.”
The BevMo! Loves Pets donation program launched in all 166 BevMo! stores in mid-September. For more information, visit http://www.bevmo.com/bevmo-loves-pets/.
