Have a Cup for the Cure: Waverly's Coffee Gives Back

Posted By on Wed, Jul 16, 2008 at 2:48 PM

This was received too late to put in Noshing Around:

On July 18 and 19, Waverly’s Coffee and Espresso to Go! will donate 25% of their sales to benefit breast cancer research through the Southern Arizona Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Waverly’s hopes to raise funds and keep this cause in the minds and hearts of Tucsonans more than once a year.

“We wanted to have our grand opening be more than a party to showcase our menu and service. We wanted to demonstrate to Tucson that even as a small business, we believe one important aspect of business leadership is to give back to the community”, said Janet Stumps, one of the business partners. “Almost everyone knows someone whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. This pernicious disease would be even more deadly were it not for the Susan G Komen organization and we are honored to help raise awareness and funds for them with this event”.

The event begins at 6 a.m. on Friday, July 18 and ends at 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 19 with a chance to win a $300 gift card drawing open to anyone who has entered up until that time. You do not need to be present to win.

The Waverly’s drive-thru menu includes beverages for all ages and tastes, so everyone is welcome.
