Starbucks Supports Rodeos

SHARK has informed us that the STARBUCKS coffee chain is now lending support to rodeos.  Unfortunately, after several phone calls back and forth, the usual corporate garbage letter was sent out (below).  Please take a moment to contact Jeff Vedvick, Customer Relations, at

         jvedvick@starbucks.com 

We will try to schedule a demo within the next few weeks.  A petition on this subject is included:

Subj: Rodeo
Date: 10/18/2005 10:35:31 AM Eastern Daylight Time
From:    info@starbucks.com (Customer Relations)
To:    skeena98@wmconnect.com (Kylie Blackman)

Kylie,

Starbucks is deeply committed to our Mission Statement and Guiding Principles.  One of our six principles is "contributing positively to our community," and one of the ways that we contribute is by supporting events that are important to the local communities that we serve.  

As a part of the Cheyenne, WY community, we wanted to show our support for the Cheyenne Frontier Days celebration; a large event which includes art shows, Native American cultural events, parades, amusement rides, a rodeo and other activities.  We showed our support by taking out a $250 advertisement in a Cheyenne Frontier Days brochure, inviting those who attended the festival to enjoy a Starbucks beverage at our local store before or after the event.

We value and appreciate your feedback, and we will continue to look for ways to support our local communities in a responsible way.

Sincerely,

Jeff V.

Starbucks Coffee Company
