Bud brands unite to benefit Hispanic fund.

Bud brands unite to benefit Hispanic fund

Budweiser and Bud Light and the Anheuser-Busch wholesalers will rally to benefit the National Hispanic Scholarship Fund (NHSF) by conducting local fund-raising activities and making a donation for each case of Budweiser and Bud Light 12-oz. cans sold in October.

Retailers will receive several point-of-sale items to boost Budweiser and Bud Light sales and to raise money for the scholarship fund. Off-premise items include convenience cards, case cards and cooler stickers. Table tents at on-premise locations will encourage customers to purchase a Budweiser/NHSF scholar shield for $1, with proceeds going to the NHSF.

Local fund-raising events coordinated by Anheuser-Busch distributors will include dance-a-thons, beach parties, battles of the bands and sports tournaments.

"This is the eighth year Anheuser-Busch and its more than 900 wholesalers have dedicated a promotional window to benefit the NHSF," said Michael Roarty, executive vice president, Anheuser-Busch, Inc.

Over the past seven years, Anheuser-Busch and its wholesalers have generated more than $5 million in funds for the NHSF. Company officials anticipate that this year's combined brewer/distributor/retailer effort will raise more than $2 million of support.

"We are proud of our contribution to last year's fund and plan to continue supporting the NHSF in the future," said Jose Teixidor, senior promotional and marketing director, B. Fernandez & HNOS, Inc.
