Des Moines-based specialty beverage company BLK & Bold announced it is holding its first community-centered event on Oct. 1 to celebrate National Coffee Day and International Coffee Day. In partnership with Minneapolis-based Mill City Roasters, the “BLK & Bold Coffee Celebration” will be open to the public and include a roastery tour, food trucks and music.

Five percent of proceeds from the event will support BLK & Bold’s social impact initiative, “For Our Youth,” which helps nonprofit organizations support children in underserved communities across the country.

“We want to be able to connect with the community and show not only how we make our specialty beverages, but why we started BLK & Bold in the first place — to make a meaningful impact,” said co-founder and CEO Pernell Cezar. The event is on Oct. 1 from 1 to 5 p.m. at BLK & Bold’s Des Moines roastery located at 5016 Park Ave. RSVP to attend on the event page
