Uncle Ike's announces $37K donation raised for Entre Hermanos

Uncle Ike's Pot Shops donated $37,194 to local non-profit Entre Hermanos following Pride week sales. Ike's, along with select cannabis brands sold in their three stores, pledged to donate 5% of proceeds earned June 18-24 to the local non-profit. Entre Hermanos, located in The Central District, promotes the health and well-being of the Latino LGBTQ community through disease prevention, education, support services, advocacy and community building.

Ian Eisenberg, Owner of Uncle Ike's decided not to renew Ike's spot in Seattle's Annual Pride Parade. 'We were spending all this money on entry fees and giveaways in the parade, which was a lot of fun, don't get me wrong, but we felt our money would be better spent giving back to our community especially during the Trump era when immigration and health reform are so important.'

Ike's 2017 Pride donation of $12,000 helped Entre Hermanos expand their legal services. 'We started taking immigration cases in office for the first time in our organization's history. This includes asylum, citizenship, DACA renewals, and spouse petition. Also, we have incorporated into our legal programs, family law clinics. This includes adoption.' Miguel Bravo, Fundraising Manager at Entre Hermanos said in an e-mail.

Participating cannabis brands included: 1937 Farms, Artizin, Avitas, Bacon's Buds, Craft Elixirs, Fairwinds, Falcanna, Freddy's Fuego, Gabriel, Goodship, Happy Apple, Heylo, House of Cultivar, Ionic, Leafwerx, Pearl, Phat Panda, Royal Tree, Seattle Green Bud, Smokey Point Productions, Solstice, Sweetwater Farms, Top Shelf WA, and Velvet Swing.

'We are always excited to collaborate with Uncle Ike's and support the community,' Alex Kwon of Leafwerx said. Johnny Wilson, VP of Sales for Phat Panda, followed up by saying, 'We value the diversity of the community; this world would be boring if everyone was the same! We are happy to have this opportunity to give back. Thank you for your continued support of our brands.'
