Folds of Honor Charity Auction
The Utah Jazz and Budweiser are teaming up to hold a silent auction to benefit Folds of Honor. Since 2007, Folds of Honor has carried forth this singular, noble mission: To provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. All proceeds from this auction will go to the Folds of Honor charity organization. Over the past 7 years, Budweiser has been a proud partner of Folds of Honor, donating more than $13 million dollars and fueling the dreams of 2,500 scholarship recipients. Last year alone, 132 scholarships were awarded in Utah and neighboring states. Together, we strive to remember the motto of this great organization: Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.
About Folds of Honor and Budweiser
Returning home from his second tour of duty in Iraq, Major Dan Rooney, an F-16 fighter pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard, became painfully aware of the reality families face when a loved one in uniform is fallen or disabled. Major Rooney committed to spend his life changing the future of America's grieving spouses and children. In 2007, he formed the Folds of Honor Foundation; a 501C-3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to the families of these heroic Americans.
Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States' first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including "kraeusening" for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.
