Brittany and Drew Brees Kick Off Summer Ice Cream Promotion To Raise Money for The Brees Dream Foundation -Famed Professional Quarterback and Philanthropist Wife Team Up with So Delicious® Dairy Free to Help Raise Funds for Their Foundation-
EUGENE, Ore., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- So Delicious® Dairy Free, makers of an extensive line of coconut and almond milk products including beverages, frozen desserts, cultured products, and the world's only dairy-free, gluten-free cookie dough "ice cream," continues their partnership with record breaking quarterback, Drew Brees, and his philanthropist wife, Brittany, to help raise money for the Brees Dream Foundation. Brittany and Drew Brees manage several food allergies and have been fans of So Delicious Dairy Free for years as they are both dairy intolerant.
"Who doesn't love ice cream? Our family sure does, but with dairy allergies, ice cream hasn't always loved us," said Drew Brees. "So Delicious Dairy Free products have been a game changer for our family – they've been a part of our daily routine for years. In addition to enjoying coconut milk or almond milk in our smoothies, we are big fans of cookie dough and cherry amaretto ice creams. And, our boys can't get enough of those No Sugar Added fudge bars!"
So Delicious Dairy Free kicks off their two-month fundraiser July 1st, which also happens to be the first day of National Ice Cream month. During July and August, So Delicious Dairy Free will donate .75% of net sales from all of their frozen desserts to the Brees Dream Foundation. The company has pledged a minimum donation of $50,000 with an uncapped maximum donation to support Brittany and Drew's nonprofit organization. The Brees Dream Foundation improves the quality of life for cancer patients and provides care, education and opportunities for children and families in need.
"So grab a pint of your favorite So Delicious Dairy Free ice cream or any of their other tasty frozen desserts this summer and know that you're helping support the Brees Dream Foundation," said Brees. "Brittany and I greatly appreciate your support!"
Brittany and Drew Brees, who were diagnosed with a number of severe food allergies in their 20s, have been fans of So Delicious Dairy Free for several years.

Brittany and Drew joined forces with So Delicious Dairy Free in 2012 to help spread the word about delicious foods for households managing food allergies and food sensitivities.
