Budweiser & music fans LA River cleanup May 18

On Saturday, May 18, Los Angeles music fans are joining Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch Brewery employees and Friends of the Los Angeles River (FOLAR) to clean up the Los Angeles River. Budweiser is supporting FOLAR’s 24th Annual Great LA River Cleanup event as part of its national Budweiser America Made Better platform, which supports water conservation (more info below) and inspires consumer volunteerism by rewarding volunteers age 21 and over with tickets to their local Budweiser Made in America party (note: tickets will be distributed to volunteers at the America Made Better river cleanup event. An additional $10 donation to The Art of Elysium is required for entry to the Made In Los Angeles party. The $10 donation includes two drink tickets per ticketholder). The Budweiser Made In Los Angeles party takes place on Tuesday, May 21, and will feature bands Big Gigantic, Milkman and The Mowgli’s. For more information, visit

This summer, Budweiser is inviting consumers to make a splash in communities across the country by participating in a series of cleanup events, in select cities, aimed at preserving and protecting lakes and rivers. These efforts are part of the Budweiser America Made Better platform, which supports designated driver campaigns, military support efforts and water conservation programs. Budweiser is rewarding volunteers 21 and older, who register and participate in the cleanups associated with Budweiser Made in America parties, with the opportunity to receive tickets for guaranteed and expedited entry to their local party – plus a chance to get VIP access.

In addition to Los Angeles, America Made Better cleanup events are taking place in the following cities: Cartersville, Ga.; Houston; San Francisco; St. Louis; Denver; Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; New York; and Philadelphia. This year, Budweiser is donating $150,000 to River Network to facilitate the majority of America Made Better cleanups across the country and to support the organization’s annual operations.
