also contributes to the economic growth of the city by hiring local
residents and becoming an active member of the business community.”
Store grand opening celebrations kick-off Monday, July 9, 2012 at the
Dupont Circle location, 1333 19th Street, NW, from 6:00 p.m.

national stakeholders, such as DC Central Kitchen, and National PTA,
will join Jamba Juice® executives to highlight and promote Jamba’s Team
Up for Healthy America™ and JambaGO™ initiatives. Both initiatives are
designed to offer parents, teachers, students, government officials and
community leaders solutions for eating healthier and staying active.
“I am thrilled to be in DC to celebrate the opening of my newest store,”
said Venus Williams, Tennis Star and Entrepreneur. “For more than 10
years my family and I have worked closely with the District government
and various community leaders to offer adults and children greater
opportunities through education and sports. My partnership with Jamba
Juice is an extension of that commitment in the fight against obesity
and to promote a healthy active lifestyle.”
On Tuesday, July 10th, 2:00pm to 4:00pm, Venus Williams and

Station later this week and more in the area in the coming year.
