A fundraising partnership between Budweiser, Dierbergs Markets and Dierbergs customers has raised more than $2,300 for Osage Beach-area Dogwood Animal Shelter.

The “Be a Bud” promotion, which ran through August at Dierbergs Lakeview, had two fund-raising components:

Budweiser donated $1 to Dogwood for every Budweiser brand 24-pack sold at Dierbergs Lakeview.

Dierbergs Lakeview customers contributed to Dogwood with donations at check-out. One-hundred percent of customer donations went directly to Dogwood.

The promotion raised $2,340 to be applied to Dogwood’s general operating funds. Dogwood Animal Shelter is a non-profit shelter that abides by a no-kill philosophy and provides shelter, rehabilitation and necessary medical attention to more than 600 dogs and cats yearly; and a spay/neuter clinic that provides services to more than 1,200 animals yearly.
