STAMFORD, Conn. (May 1, 2014) — America’s leading beer brand, Bud Light, today announced it will partner with Keep America Beautiful to launch the “Do Good. Have Fun.” series, a program that will engage consumers coast-to-coast in community refreshment projects. Summer means fun and volunteering offers the chance to make a meaningful impact while building great memories.  That’s why Bud Light is encouraging consumers across the country to do some good while having some fun during Bud Light “Do Good.

Tapping Keep America Beautiful’s national network of community-based affiliates, Bud Light will bring people together all summer long for various hands-on projects in their local areas.
