Blenz Coffee will accept any amount of money for any size of drip coffee on Oct. 28 in return for a donation to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Coffee by Donation Day will take place at all 60 Blenz locations across B.C. and Alberta, including in Penticton at their location at 284 Main Street. The event takes place during each store’s regular operating hours.
“It is important for us to give back to charities that are raising funds for innovative research in British Columbia,” said Shawn Pattison, Blenz vice president.
Every October, Blenz has vibrant pink to-go cups to raise breast cancer awareness and to encourage customers to get involved with the CBCF.
Each time customers use the hashtag #BLENZCBCF, Blenz will donate 25 cents to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and 50 cents from each organic strawberry and royal tea latte sold will also be donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
