BRAND-O FOODS SPONSORS CHARITY TREKS HIV/AIDS BIKE TREK 2015
October 3, 2016
Brand-O Foods was honored to be a sponsor of this year's Charity Treks HIV/AIDS Bike Trek from Charlottesville to Washington, DC. Powering through soggy conditions, the riders made it through the Blue Ridge Mountains to our nation's capital, raising over $100,000 HIV/AIDS research in the process. The funds will be donated to the UCLA Aids Institute and the Emory University Vaccine Center, for their efforts in working towards a cure for HIV/AIDS
Congratulations to all the riders, and big thank you to the event organizers for allowing Brand-O Foods to be a part of this most worthy event.

Brand-O Foods is pleased to announce that our flagship Speedie B's Chocolate Peanut Butter and Almond Cherry flavors will be featured at the 2015 Aspen Ideas Festival, as an amenity item for presenters and attendees. The Ideas Festival will be held from June 25th through July 4th, on the Aspen Institute's campus in Aspen, Colorado.
Per the Festival Web site, "The Aspen Ideas Festival is the nation's premier, public gathering place for leaders from around the globe and across many disciplines to engage in deep and inquisitive discussion of the ideas and issues that both shape our lives and challenge our times. Some 350 presenters, 200 sessions, and 3,000 attendees comprise the annual Festival, launched in 2005."
Through its message of "Small Business, Big Ideas," Brand-O Foods is highlighting its commitment to sourcing of local ingredients where possible; providing meaningful work experience (and competitive wages) for Charlottesville-Albemarle Culinary Arts students; and supporting area charities and nonprofits that support healthy aging, in all life phases.
As a Charlottesville-based small business, we are excited to have Speedie B's included alongside regional and national food brands, and for the opportunity to introduce Speedie B's to a select audience of taste makers and trendsetters from the worlds of business, the arts, politics, sciences, humanities, and philanthropy.
