Coffee For A Cause
A Fundraising Event for The Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation (WEODWF)
San Diego, CA. February 20, 2013: San Diego Joe Coffee Blogger, also known in the local San Diego coffee community as Jessica Percifield, presents the Second Coffee For A Cause Event to benefit the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation. The event will be hosted by InterAmerican Coffee, which is located in the historic Wheel Works Building at 1205 J. Street, downtown San Diego, on Saturday March 23rd, from 1p.m. to 3p.m. Tickets are $15, available online at http://coffeeforacause.eventbrite.com. All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the WEODWF. A silent raffle and a portion of bean sales will also benefit the WEODWF.
The first Coffee For A Cause Event was such a success that we’ve answered the call to do it again on a larger scale with the help of InterAmerican Coffee and as many as ten local coffee Roasters that will include Roast Magazine’s 2012 Micro-Roaster of the Year, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, and other Roasters, old and new, making names for themselves like The West Bean, La Costa Coffee, James Coffee Company, and Caffe CaLabria to name a few.
Coffee For A Cause is more than an opportunity to spend an afternoon talking coffee, learning home brewing best practices, tasting locally roasted coffees paired with biscotti and a few other locally prepared treats, it is an opportunity to give to San Diego’s local Chapter of the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation.
The Fundraiser will benefit the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation. EOD means Explosive Ordnance Disposal. EOD Techs are the bomb squad of the military. Navy and Marine EOD units are stationed here in San Diego County. When they deploy to combat zones, their job is to disarm IEDs and other dangerous explosives. When an EOD Tech is gravely injured, their family is equally affected. WEODWF provides support for the family of EOD Techs as they recover and reintegrate into life after the blast.
About the host: InterAmerican Coffee’s mission, as an importer, is to source and deliver high quality green coffee to roasters throughout North America. They use their global supply chain to search for the finest coffees and bring increased choices to their customers. They strive to build, support, and foster sustainable relationships with their suppliers, customers, communities, and the environment. Sheridan Owings, a Trading Assistant at InterAmerican, attended the first Coffee for a Cause event as a volunteer back in November of 2012. She was so excited by the energy, interest and fun everyone had whilst giving to such a great Cause that she immediately offered InterAmerican’s space for the next event. An invitation Coffee For A Cause was happy to accept.
