Louisville, KY- Dan-O’s own Dan Oliver recently tee’d off with the Jamon Brown Foundation at their third annual golf scramble at the University of Louisville Golf Course. The third annual golf scramble was presented by Kroger and the Kentucky Derby Festival and was in benefit of the Jamon Brown Foundation Empowerment Center.
The mission of the J. Brown Foundation is to impact the lives of those struggling with Poverty, Violence, and Youth Homelessness, and to improve upon the Education and Healthy Living issues that are typically prevalent in at-risk areas while influencing others to do the same.
Brown says “This empowerment center is near and dear to my heart. I want to leave a legacy in the community that helped raise me and supported me throughout my career. This is my hometown and I want to make positive contributions for the betterment of the whole community, and it begins with the community I grew up in. I can’t thank everyone enough for your support.”’
Dan-O’s sponsored the 7th hole, giving away a taste of flavor with Toothpick Timmy grilling and serving up some signature Dan-O’s chicken. Dan-O’s also gave away golf tees and balls, koozies, and spices at the hole. But that wasn’t the only goodies the participants received.
Participants also got the first exclusive taste of the new Dan-O’s Chipotle Jerky. Dan-O’s put a bag in every golf cart, giving them a chance to taste the spicy, sweet, and smoky chipotle southwestern flavor before it was even announced! “I’m not normally a huge beef jerky fan but this is amazing, this is dan-good!” One golfer commented. “Great flavor, not too hot, little thing to it. It’s good, really good” another shared. Dan-O’s Original and Spicy was also featured in each Golfer’s Gift bag, letting them take home the Yum Yum Get Ya Sum flavor for themselves!
Dan-O’s is proud to have been part of such a great event and looks forward to next year’s Golf Scramble. You can learn more about the Jamon Brown Foundation’s mission, and how to get involved at their website.
