Raleigh, NC, June 10, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Mims Distributing Company, a leading North Carolina wholesale beverage distributor, is once again partnering with Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company for the fourth annual Canoes for a Cause campaign on Saturday, June 18 from 9 a.m. to noon at Lake Johnson in Wake County. This year Leinenkugel’s and Mims Distributing have partnered with the Wake Soil and Water Conservation District and The River Guardian Foundation to host the volunteer litter cleanup event.
The Canoes for a Cause campaign exemplifies Leinenkugel’s passion for water quality. With water being the main ingredient in beer, Leinenkugel’s relies on local water sources for production efforts. Previously, Canoes for a Cause events have been held in Chicago, Denver, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Madison, Wisconsin and Cleveland. Mims Distributing’s support of the event is part of the company’s commitment to clean, contaminate-free waterways and dedication to preserving North Carolina’s natural resources.
Participants will gather to clean the lake by canoe and kayak or on foot, and following the cleanup, there will be a volunteer appreciation party with Leinenkugel’s beers and prizes. Pre-registration is requested and can be completed online by visiting http://bit.ly/28g7GRU.
“For the fourth consecutive year, we are honored to collaborate with Leinenkugel’s to bolster its efforts to ensure clean water resources in the Triangle and across the country,” said Chip Mims, CEO of Mims Distributing Company. “Canoes for a Cause brings together people from all different backgrounds who share a love of nature and a passion for keeping their community litter free, safe and beautiful. I encourage everyone to come out and have a fun day on the lake while making a difference in the environmental quality of our area.”
“Pure, clean water has always been an important part of Leinenkugel’s brewing heritage” said Dick Leinenkugel, President of Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. “We’re happy to partner with Mims Distributing Company for the fourth year as we give back to the environment by preserving local water resources.”

About Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co.:
The Leinenkugel Family brewery was founded in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin in May 1867 by Jacob Leinenkugel. A family man driven by an iron work ethic, Jacob knew that his family would play an integral part of his brewery’s success. Today, the sixth generation of Leinenkugel’s continue to brew the same family inspired recipes that Jacob poured his heart and soul into. Over the years, the family has grown and so has the brewery, but its history and heritage remain at the forefront.
