ROCKLIN, Calif. (Nov. 20, 2013) – Dutch Bros. Coffee of Rocklin and community members banded together on Nov. 15 to raise $4,400 for Rocklin and Whitney High School sober grad nights.


To raise funds, Dutch Bros. Rocklin offered drinks for $1 and donated 100% of proceeds to the cause. The $4,400 will be split equally between the two schools.


“This will be a fabulous help,” said WHS Sober Grad Night co-chair Dina Lombardo. “I feel so blessed that Dutch Bros. came to us and said they were willing to do this for our high school.” Dina advised that funds will go toward entertainment, food, gifts and prizes at the event.


“The day was unbelievable,” said local owner-operators Jeremy and Heather Mauel. “Such a great response from the community. We think most of Rocklin came out to see us!”


The donation was in honor of the store’s grand opening.


The new location, at 3450 Sunset Blvd., will be open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.


Since the Mauels opened their Auburn location in 2009, they have given back over $80,000 to local causes, including Boys & Girls Clubs, Acres of Hope, Foster Youth Services, Relay for Life, 4-H, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Young Life, Placer County Food Bank, local schools, youth sports, music programs and community events.

About Dutch Bros. Gold Country


Local owner-operators Jeremy and Heather Mauel first fell in love with Dutch Bros. on the other side of the window, as customers in Dallas, Ore.


“We really appreciated the old-school approach to customer service,” they said of the crew. “They greeted us with friendly smiles and always knew our names and drinks!”


They came to know owner Joe, and, when they were ready to move the family back to their Auburn hometown, he encouraged them to franchise.


Now, every day, they enjoy the opportunity they have to make a difference through Dutch Bros.


“We love giving back because we’ve been given so much!” they said. “The strength and well-being of our community, now and for future generations, is very important to us.”


In addition to supporting causing, their givebacks strike a personal note, with a recent all-proceeds day supporting regular customer Tami Cooke in her battle against cancer. “Our crew also donated 100% of their tips in support of the family,” said Jeremy and Heather. “We love watching our employees choose to live a life of service inside and outside of the shop.”


At Dutch Bros. Gold Country, relationships extend far beyond the drive-through window. In addition to two beautiful girls, Aria and Audrey, the Mauels enjoy a Dutch extended family of customers, crew and community who help them make a difference, one cup at a time.
