Beer is Love Spotlight: The Center OC and Planned Parenthood

Dec 20, 2016 Comments (1)  | Tags: Beer is Love Beer is Love Spotlight: The Center OC and Planned Parenthood


We believe in supporting non-profits that fight for change. The Center OC and Planned Parenthood are two organizations that proudly fight for love, unity, and justice. We are honored to bring beer to as many events as we can, because in the end, beer really is love. Beer is Love supports organizations in five core categories: women, arts & music, recreation, environment, and equality. We are so proud to be able to donate beer to these organizations and support their events.

The Center OC Fall Fundraiser 

The mission of The Center OC is to advocate on behalf of the Orange County lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) community, and to provide services that ensure its wellbeing and positive identity. The second oldest LGBT center in the nation, The Center OC serves over 10,000 LGBTQ clients annually, and remains the most comprehensive health and social service organization specifically targeting Orange County’s LGBTQ community. Our programs emphasize five strategic focus areas: advocacy and social justice, strengthening youth, improving health/wellness, increasing social support, and seniors. All programs and services are conducted within the context of unconditional acceptance of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and cultural diversity. The Center OC aspires to help all people reach their human potential through the provision of life-affirming and life-enriching services that focus on self-empowerment.

The fall fundraiser allows The Center to bring together a diverse and spread out community with the purpose of raising awareness and funds, while making connections with supportive individuals and businesses.

The Beer is Love program is designed to lend support to organizations that create a better living. The LGBTQ Center OC strives in giving support in advocacy, health, events, programs and resources. Having the support of Ninkasi Brewing allows the community to connect with a supporting business, while raising additional funds during this fall event through drink sales.

Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon Centennial Celebration

In October 2016, Planned Parenthood turned 100 years strong. Planned Parenthood was founded on the idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams — no ceilings, no limits. Centennial events were held at all affiliates throughout the country, including Eugene.

Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon is a strong and respected leader throughout our eight-county region for family planning and sexual health services. Since 1966, it has proudly served more than one million women, men, youth, and families in southwestern Oregon. Its mission: ensure the right and ability of all individuals to manage their sexual and reproductive health by providing health services, education and advocacy.

Mission Statement: A Reason for Being

Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is

  • to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual
  • to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services
  • to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality
  • to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications

    Just found it Tacoma. Being the drummer for a blues band that started out of Eugene, Robert Cray, I had to laugh thinking what a perfect name for a beer from that town! Beer Is Love. I've enjoyed the Ninkasi's for awhile now, knowing I could count on quality from the Eugene mindset. Tastes great, although I'm not so sure my nose works all the well. Those days....
