Auburn, Calif. (April 25, 2017) – On Wednesday, April 18, Dutch Bros Auburn rallied with its community to raise $8,800 for Frankie Militano to help her and her family offset medical expenses.
Frankie is a strong willed, young girl who was recently diagnosed with stage four Neuroblastoma. The two and a half year old and her family are loyal Dutch Bros customers that frequently visit. Frankie’s mother Bethany is a past employee at Dutch Bros Auburn and Bethany’s sister currently works for the company.
“We’re blown away by the outpouring of support and generosity of our hometown!” said Jeremy Mauel, owner of Dutch Bros Auburn. “We hope this will help Frankie and her family through this stressful time.”
To raise funds, both Dutch Bros Auburn locations donated proceeds from the day’s sale. The locations also provided on-site donation buckets for community members wanting to contribute more to this local family. These funds will directly benefit Frankie and her family to help offset medical expenses garnered from this unforeseen chapter in their lives.
