The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Las Vegas Raising Awareness

In The Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer

Become Part of #PurpleForAPurpose at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign on November 21st!


The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® Las Vegas is helping create awareness in the fight against pancreatic cancer, the nation’s fourth leading cause of cancer deaths, by participating in Purple for a Purpose on November 21 at the world famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, as well as on “Giving Tuesday” on December 2, 2014.

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® Las Vegas will provide a beverage for #PurpleForAPurpose during the lighting ceremony at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. on Friday, November 21, 2014. 

The sign will be lit in purple lights to honor those who have lost their battle with pancreatic cancer, those who are currently affected by the disease and those who will be diagnosed in the future. The public is encouraged to attend and also enjoy a complimentary Hot Chocolate from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Truck. 

“We know there has been little progress in the past 40 years to help those affected by pancreatic cancer and we hope that will change,” said Marisa Endy-Vanchieri, Director of Marketing and Community Relations for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Las Vegas   “As a Las Vegas-based company and one that strongly supports the community in which we live and work, we are honored to support pancreatic cancer and to go #purpleforapurpose.”

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, also known as “Giving Tuesday”,  The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® Las Vegas will also be offering free holiday specialty drinks from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Las Vegas Strip locations and from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. at all neighborhood locations. Customers will be encouraged to sip, snap a photo and share the following hashtags: #purplestrawforapurpose, #pancreaticcancer, and #wagehope.  Holiday specialty drinks include the Toffee Nut Latte or Ice Blended® drink, Red Velvet Hot Chocolate and Winter Dream Tea® Latte.

Pancreatic cancer is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and is anticipated to become the second by 2020.  This year, more than 46,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and nearly 36,000 will die.  There are no early detection tools and few effective treatment options.  To learn how you can make a difference visit
