Since Our inception in 1997, we have been committed to giving back to the communities in which our businesses grow and thrive. Over the years, the Oskar Blues Brewery and restaurants have provided support to those in need by organizing many events, canned food and clothing drives at each of their locations during the holidays, to making monetary donations to local organizations.
“With just one point-in-time donation to our organization, Oskar Blues fed 5,000 people. Successful businesses can make a huge difference to the communities they live in,” said Edwina Salazar, executive director of the OUR Center
For Oskar Blues’ owner/founder, Dale Katechis, helping people and giving back to the community is something that Oskar Blues has always been engaged in. In September of 2013, we created the “Oskar Blues CAN’d Aid Foundation” to allow that engagement to expand at a local and national level.
“It’s been a 15 year mission for me to organize a way to give back to the communities that helped build our businesses,” Katechis said.
