Campos Coffee to Host Fundraiser for Australian Wildlife

CAMPOS COFFEE TO HOST “REBUILDING OUR ROOTS: TO AUSTRALIA WITH LOVE” IN SALT LAKE CITY TO SUPPORT AUSTRALIAN COMMUNITIES AND WILDLIFE DEVASTATED BY RECENT WILDFIRES

The ticketed fundraiser will be held on February 13 at Campos Coffee’s Edison Street Location

Australian specialty coffee roaster, Campos Coffee, will be hosting a pre-Valentine’s Day fundraiser, Rebuilding Our Roots: To Australia with Love, to support the wildlife relief effort in the wake of Australia’s devastating wildfires. The event will take place at Campos’ Salt Lake City location on Thursday, February 13, 6:00-9:00 p.m. Tickets are available for $50 and include passed hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, wine, beer, and live music. Special guests Utah Jazz player Joe Ingles and his wife, Renae, a gold medalist netballer and winner of the International Player of the Year Award, will be in attendance. A silent auction will feature exciting offerings including a trip to Australia, coffee brewing equipment, and gear signed by Utah Jazz team members. Additional auction items include coffee brewing equipment, wine classes, whiskey tastings, Jazz tickets, and private chef-catered meals. Proceeds from the event will be donated to WIRES (Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service, Inc.), an Australian non-profit that has provided wildlife rescue services for more than 30 years. 

“Given Utah’s affinity for wildlife and the environment, we thought having an event to serve as a fun platform for raising funds to provide relief to Australia’s animals would appeal to our local community,” says Hillary Merrill, Head of Retail, Campos Coffee USA. 

The devastation the bushfires have caused will have long-term impacts on wildlife and communities as a result of the millions of acres of charred land and decimated homes. Millions of birds, reptiles and mammals, including Australia’s beloved koalas, have been killed. Wildlife that survived will face challenges with respect to term food, water, and habitat.

“Campos Coffee is built on communities and bringing people together over coffee. While the Campos Coffee’s roasting operations have fortunately been unaffected by the fires, many of our café partners in towns across Australia have been severely impacted due to local infrastructure damage and reduced tourism during the busiest period of the year.” says Rachel Pullicino, CMO of Campos Coffee. “As Australia begins to rebuild communities after the devastation, we are so grateful for the overwhelming support from our friends all over America, and the Salt Lake fundraiser is a unique way for people in our local community to get involved.”

Redhead Clients to Attend NY and LA Media Events in June

Redhead Marketing & PR is pleased to attend media events in New York and Los Angeles in June with clients Table X and Campos Coffee. Organized by the Utah Office of Tourism, the events are designed to showcase the Salt Lake City area as an emerging culinary destination. Table X is one of just four Salt Lake City restaurants to be selected to participate at these events where dozens of lifestyle, food, and travel media have been invited to watch each chef prepare a dish, followed by a tasting. Other participants include chefs from Pallet, Caputo’s, and Handle.

One of Table X’s three chef-owners, Nick Fahs, will represent the Millcreek restaurant by preparing a vegetable steak dish with ingredients harvested from the on-site garden. Just last week, Table X won the “Best Concept” Award at the Utah Restaurant Association’s 2019 Annual Restaurant Industry Awards.

Campos Coffee, a well-known Australian coffee brand with U.S. flagship locations in Park City and Salt Lake City, will provide an espresso bar at each event. After all, the journalists need to return to their desks not just well fed but well caffeinated! Media guests will receive Utah Office of Tourism SWAG bags that will include a sample package of coffee from Campos.

Redhead Marketing & PR’s Hilary Reiter will accompany Campos Coffee and Table X to both events in an effort to help facilitate interactions with reporters and editors. “This is a tremendous opportunity for Table X and Campos to have this forum for media exposure in two markets that contribute to a large percentage of Utah’s tourism,” Reiter says. “It’s an honor that two of our clients were invited to participate on these national stages, and we are excited to join them in publicizing Salt Lake City restaurants.”
