Movember is Here!
Movember is an annual event involving the
growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness
of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male
cancers, and associated charities.
The Movember Foundation’s vision is to have an
everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. They do this by getting men to
grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark
conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental
health. Together with the Movember community they have raised over $550
million, and have funded over 800 world-class programs in 21 countries, for the
purpose of saving and improving the lives of men affected by
prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental
Budweiser is a proud supporter of this
program. City Beverages Team Members will
show their support by participating during the month of November and we hope that our retail partners and consumers will, too! Show off that moustache and get people
talking about the importance of men’s health!
Thanks to the generosity of City Beverages, the Folds of Honor Foundation is able to fund two $5,000 educational scholarships for local Florida military families.
The Folds of Honor Foundation, based in Owasso, Okla., is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization with a mission to empower military families by providing educational scholarships and other assistance for the children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.
“This donation is our way of saying thank you to our veterans and their families and honoring their sacrifices made for our freedom,” said Colby Kiene, COO, City Beverages. “We hope to continue supporting the Folds of Honor Foundation, our veterans and their families in 2014/2015 and beyond.”
City Beverages is the local Anheuser-Busch Distributor for Orange, Osceola, and Lake Counties. Their vision is to create an environment of value and profitability while maintaining quality leadership and commitment to their industry and community. They strive to provide quality products and services exceeding customer expectations.
The second recipient of City Beverages’ donation is Estrella Rivera Lopez. Estrella is a sophomore at Valencia College in Orlando, FL. Estrella’s mother, Specialist Wanda Lopez, served honorably in the United States Army and is now a disabled veteran.
We recognized Estrella before the Orlando Magic game played on November 7th. This day was also Military Appreciation Night with the Orlando Magic.
