Drink One for Dane

Dutch Bros. Coffee is inviting the public to “Drink One for Dane” and help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

On Friday, May 3, all 198 Dutch Bros. Coffee locations in seven states will donate 100 percent of their proceeds to MDA for research and family services funding. Last year’s event raised $174,000.

The company’s annual MDA Day honors Dutch Bros. co-founder Dane Boersma, who was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2005 and died in late 2009. Since aligning with MDA in 2007, Dutch Bros. has raised and donated more than $600,000.

There are four local Dutch Bros. Coffee locations:

• 16222 S.E. Stark St., Portland.

• 18710 S.E. Stark St., Portland.

• 17404 S.E. Division St., Portland.

• 328 N.W. Burnside Road, Gresham.

Dutch Bros. is open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
