Drew Brees, Wife Kick Off National Ice Cream Month With Promotion For Foundation
So Delicious® Dairy Free, makers of an extensive line of coconut and almond milk products including beverages, frozen desserts, “yogurts” and the world’s only dairy-free, gluten-free cookie dough “ice cream,” has partnered with record-breaking quarterback Drew Brees and his philanthropist wife Brittany to help raise money for the Brees Dream Foundation. The Brees each manage several food allergies and have been fans of So Delicious Dairy Free for years as they are both dairy intolerant.
So Delicious Dairy Free kicks off its two-month fundraiser in July, which is National Ice Cream Month. During July and August, So Delicious Dairy Free will donate .75 percent of net sales from all of its frozen desserts to the Brees Dream Foundation. The company has pledged a minimum donation of $50,000 with an uncapped maximum donation to support the Brees’ 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.
“Our family loves ice cream, but with dairy allergies, ice cream hasn’t always loved us,” said Drew Brees. “Brittany and I discovered So Delicious Dairy Free years ago when we started to address our own food allergies, and now we manage a household with numerous food sensitivities. Today, we have fun in our kitchen as we all wrestle over the No Sugar Added Frozen Fudge Bars.”
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. Despite allergies to dairy, gluten and some nuts, Drew has been able to perform as a world-class athlete over the past decade thanks in part to foods like So Delicious Dairy Free.
