The Boulder-Based LGBTQ Corporate Supporter Releases the “Pride Bar” to Spread Love and Raise Awareness
BOULDER, COLORADO, May 29, 2019 – Bobo’s, the Boulder-based natural food company and maker of freshly baked whole grain snacks, wants to inspire everyone with the message “Love Wins”. As a proud LGBTQ corporate supporter, Bobo’s is raising awareness during Pride Month with their recently launched Pride Bar in partnership with The Center on Colfax. Deeply moved by The Center’s dedication to supporting Colorado’s LGBTQ community, Bobo’s limited-edition “Pride Bar,” available in the brand’s iconic lemon-poppyseed flavor, will donate 30 percent of its sales directly to the organization to help further support their critical efforts.
Since 1976, The Center on Colfax has played a pivotal role in giving voice to Colorado’s LGBTQ community, furthering and driving statewide initiatives to reduce harassment and discrimination. The organization has grown to become the largest LGBTQ community center in the region, hosting a number of programs and providing critical resources for both youth and adults. The Center and their cause are passion points for the Bobo’s family as they continue to encourage everyone to snack with purpose, and seek to bring a sense of home, love and family through each of their hand baked bars.
“Bobo’s message of ‘love wins’ goes beyond just loving those around you. It’s about embracing and celebrating everyone for who they are” says TJ McIntyre, CEO. “We believe strongly in equality and ensuring that all people feel welcome and accepted, and are proud to align our brand with an organization who brings that mission to life.”
Debra Pollock, CEO at The Center on Colfax, added “We are very grateful to Bobo’s for their wonderful support of The Center and Denver PrideFest. Bobo’s provides our community with a delicious, healthy snack while also giving back. It is extraordinary that Bobo’s has established itself as a leader in charitable giving and community inclusion.”
