Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q Raises Money with Pink “Cup for A Cause” Campaign for Breast Cancer Charities
For the sixth year in a row, Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q raises money for breast cancer charities with their Pink “Cup for a Cause” campaign. Originally scheduled for October, Rudy’s postponed their annual campaign in order to raise money for Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
Starting February 14th, Rudy’s is transforming their normal 32 oz cups into the famous Pink Cup and encourages guests to donate $1. In exchange, guests receive a coupon for a free drink to be used on their next visit. The 2016 campaign raised $166,085, putting the company over the million-dollar mark for the total amount raised by the Cup for a Cause campaigns. This campaign will run until March 14th.
Rudy’s has a similar campaign during the month of May. Camo “Cup for a Cause” raises money for military-inspired charities. This year’s Camo Cup raised over $160,000, a new record for the campaign.
“It’s amazing what we’ve been able to accomplish throughout the past six years,” said Pete Bassett, VP of Operations at Rudy’s. “We are grateful to all our charity partners and guests who have embraced Cup for A Cause right from the start. It’s proof that even a dollar can make a big difference.”
