The RumChata Freedom Bottle program is back for its fourth year this summer, further building its support for the Lone Survivor Foundation (LSF).
Since 2014 more than $625,000 has been raised for LSF through the RumChata Foundation’s annual Freedom Bottle progam.
The Lone Survivor Foundation (LSF) is a not-for-profit organization that restores, empowers, and renews hope for wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support. Donations from the RumChata Freedom Bottle have directly supported important and effective veteran retreats held at the LSF Crystal Beach Retreat Facility in Bolivar, Texas. The successful fundraising efforts through the RumChata Freedom Bottle Program has made it possible for LSF to start planning a second retreat facility in North Carolina.
“We are excited to announce that donations from the RumChata Freedom Bottle will allow us to expand our retreat programs held at our soon to be built Fayetteville, North Carolina facility.”
– Terence D. Jung, Executive Director, Lone Survivor Foundation
RumChata’s limited-time collection of red, white and blue logoed bottles are available now in time for Memorial Day and will be on shelves and floor displays through the Fourth of July. All bottles sold benefit and support LSF. Each year’s donation helps service members, veterans, and their families attend the LSF educational and therapeutic retreat program which focuses on coping with the struggles of the invisible wounds of war. Along with the support through the sales of the commemorative bottle, consumers will also be able to directly text a $5.00 donation* via their mobile phone by texting “Heroes” to 27722.
“Support amongst our retail and distributor partners for this program grows every year. I appreciate seeing so many displays up around the country featuring the Freedom Bottle and sharing in our foundation’s commitment to our mission to support the Lone Survivor Foundation.”
– Tom Maas, RumChata Founder and Master Blender
The Lone Survivor Foundation was founded by Marcus Luttrell, author of the 2007 #1 New York Times best-selling book, Lone Survivor, about his survival and loss of fellow service members in Operation Redwing.
The RumChata 750 ml commemorative Freedom Bottle is available in all 50 states at an average retail price of $19.99.
