It's Not Either/Or

From a CNN piece about a very generous gift giving underprivileged students a free ride to Brown:
Sidney Frank made millions marketing Jagermeister and other alcohol brands. Three years after his death, he's a big hit with students at the Ivy League college he briefly attended.

He's a big hit not because of what he sold, but because he's given dozens of them what he couldn't afford as a young man: an education at Rhode Island's Brown University.

Okay, let's be honest. He's probably a big hit because of both.
