NORTHERN COLORADO, Sept. 27, 2017 – For the 12th year in a row, The Human Bean drive-thru coffee shop(s) is hosting Coffee for a Cure on Friday, Oct. 20 from 5 a.m. – 10 p.m. This is the largest fundraiser event executed by The Human Bean during the year, and all northern Colorado Human Bean locations will donate 100 percent of sales to local cancer projects. Proceeds from the Larimer County locations will benefit the Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies Foundation Oncology Patient and Family Support Fund; proceeds from the Weld County locations will benefit the North Colorado Medical Center Breast Cancer Fund.

“Thanks to the generous support of our northern Colorado community, Coffee for a Cure raised more than $50,000 last year,” said Frank Sherman, owner of The Human Bean. “We look forward to exceeding this amount in 2017 and making an impact in the lives of local cancer fighters.”

The Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies Oncology Patient and Family Support fund helps cancer patients pay for basic needs after diagnosis, including insurance premiums, prescriptions, co-pays for office visits/procedures and more.

The North Colorado Medical Center Breast Cancer Fund benefits women who meet a poverty level of 300 percent, which helps women who do not quite qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford high-quality health insurance. The funds will help women cover diagnostic mammograms, breast imaging and biopsies, as well as prescriptions, co-pays, and living expenses for those who are undergoing treatment. 100 percent of funds are kept for women in Greeley and surrounding towns.

To support these organizations to the fullest extent, The Human Bean has added components to Coffee for a Cure: drawings for grand prize giveaways for Human Bean swag and signature gifts only offered during Coffee for a Cure. Tickets for the drawing may be purchased at one for $5 or three for $10 at any

Human Bean location. In addition, The Human Bean will have a Snapchat filter available for use surrounding their stands on Friday, October 20. With each use of the filter, The Human Bean will donate an additional $1 to these funds above (up to $2,000).

Each of The Human Bean locations will have nurses and hospital employees as Guest Baristas throughout the day beginning at 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., who will talk to customers about the program’s benefits and how the money will be used.
