Sacramento-area Dutch Bros. Coffee drive-thrus have raised more than $64,000 for slain Sacramento Police Officer Tara O’Sullivan’s memorial fund.
O’Sullivan, 26, was shot and killed on June 19 while responding to a domestic violence call in north Sacramento that led to an hours-long police standoff with the suspected shooter, Adel Sambrano Ramos.
The coffee chain hosted the fundraiser on June 26 to donate $1 from every drink sold from local locations to O’Sullivan’s memorial fund.
“Officer O’Sullivan paid the ultimate sacrifice!” Dutch Bros. said in a Facebook post announcing it had raised $64,441. “Thank you for honoring her memory in such a huge way!”
Dutch Bros. has raised thousands in fundraisers for a variety of causes, including the Sacramento SPCA and ALS research.
The chain has locations in Sacramento, Carmichael, Elk Grove, Fair Oaks, Citrus Heights, Roseville, Davis and Woodland.
