Dierbergs and Budweiser Raise More than $23,000 for Stray Rescue of St. Louis
ST. LOUIS (October 1, 2012) – Stray Rescue of St. Louis has more than $23,000 to help St. Louis strays thanks to a fund-raising partnership between Budweiser, Dierbergs Markets and Dierbergs customers.
The “Be a Bud” promotion, which ran through August at all Dierbergs stores, had two fund-raising components:
- Budweiser donated $1 to Stray Rescue for every Budweiser brand 30-pack sold at Dierbergs.
- Dierbergs customers contributed to Stray Rescue with donations at check-out. One-hundred percent of customer donations went directly to Stray Rescue.
The promotion raised $23,803 to be applied to Stray Rescue’s emergency medical care fund.
Stray Rescue is a St. Louis not-for-profit organization that rescues stray animals and places them in loving adoptive homes. Stray Rescue abides by a no-kill philosophy and saves over 2,000 strays dogs annually.
