Human Bean Northern Colorado Raises Nearly $68,000 in One-Day Coffee for a Cure Fundraiser for Local Cancer Fighters

Check presented to Weld Legacy Foundation for $33,799.12

Human Bean Northern Colorado hosted their 18th annual Coffee for a Cure event on Friday, October 20. All 10 drive-thru locations donated 100 percent of sales to serve the northern Colorado community and provide financial assistance to overcome barriers related to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, and all cancers, for patients at local Banner and UCHealth facilities. In just the one day, The Human Bean raised a total of $67,598.23. The total amount raised is being equally divided between local Banner and UCHealth facilities.

“This is our largest fundraising event of the year,” said Frank Sherman, owner of Human Bean Northern Colorado. “We are so proud of how hard our staff works to put this event together, and proud of our customers who always come out to support cancer fighters in our community. Together we are making a difference.”

To further support the benefiting organizations, The Human Bean sold a limited-edition pack exclusively for Coffee for a Cure to help raise even more funds. The pack included a silicone Coffee for a Cure mug filled with their signature chocolate-covered espresso beans, an exclusive Coffee for a Cure sticker, one free drink voucher and a Human Bean key chain for $35.

On Saturday, February 3, Human Bean Northern Colorado proudly presented a check to the Weld Legacy Foundation for $33,799.12 during the University of Northern Colorado basketball game. Formerly the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation, The Weld Legacy Foundation provides health and education-focused nonprofit organizations in Weld County with the tools and resources they need to multiply their impact and expand their outcomes.
