Boulder, CO (June 1, 2020) – Love is at the center of everything at Bobo’s, the Colorado-based maker of simple, delicious bars and snacks, from the heart they put into handmaking their bars, their day-to-day interactions with each other, and their work with community partners. To celebrate and give back to the LGBTQ+ community for the second year in a row, Bobo’s is baking their delicious limited-edition Lemon Poppyseed Pride Bar in a new national partnership with PFLAG National, and continued partnership with local Colorado non-profit, The Center on Colfax. All year round 100% of the proceeds from every purchase of the bar will help provide critical resources and support to LGBTQ+ individuals and families. At Bobo’s, the team believes in pouring their heart into everything they do and loving everyone like family no matter who they are or who they love. Bobo’s hope for this initiative is to illustrate inclusion, acceptance and above all else – love, towards others. ‘Love wins’ goes beyond just loving those around you but also embracing and celebrating everyone for who they are. Working with The Center along with PFLAG truly aligns with Bobo’s passion for equality and making people feel welcome. The Center on Colfax is a collaborative leader in creating a safe, healthy, inclusive, equitable and affirming Colorado for all LGBTQ community members. The organization works to further statewide initiatives to reduce harassment and discrimination. Fans of the brand can grab their own bar and join Bobo’s during The Center’s ‘Virtual Denver Pride’ on June 21. PFLAG is the first and largest organization for LGBTQ+ people and has over 200,000 members and supporters and aligns with Bobo’s family values for making the world a more respected and valued place for all. “Our team is so thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with organizations that spread our mission of loving others like family,” said TJ McIntyre, CEO of Bobo’s.” The work that The Center and our national partner do have helped to give a voice to the LGBTQ+ community and we are honored to help them in their endeavors all year long.” “We are so happy to be partnering with Bobo’s for a second year to support our efforts and our local LGBTQ+ voices,” said Rex Fuller, CEO at The Center on Colfax. “We are thankful to have a community partner that truly encourages our mission through the work that they do.” “With Pride celebrations and community gathering places shuttered as a result of the Covid-19 crisis, it is important for the parents, families, and allies of LGBTQ+ people—from PFLAG members to businesses like Bobo’s—to proudly share our support,” said Brian K. Bond, Executive Director of PFLAG National. “PFLAG is grateful for Bobo’s partnership, which will help enhance our education, support, and advocacy efforts nationwide.” The limited-edition Lemon Poppyseed Pride Bar is available online through Bobo’s and The Center on Colfax’s websites all year long.
