With the on-set of Hurricane Harvey, we quickly knew that this storm was going to be a catastrophic event for many of our customers, staff and physical locations. Over the past several weeks and continuing into the future, we are steadfast on providing both food and financial support to our fellow Texans.
We have donated thousands of meals to victims, volunteers and our uniformed service members that are helping Texas rebuild. Also, we will be covering all employee wages for the time that our affected locations were closed.
Now we ask our customers to get involved by purchasing our Texas Strong t-shirt where 100% of proceeds go to Hurricane Harvey Relief charities*. A $20 t-shirt is a $20 donation!
The Cup For a Cause campaign has been one of our proudest initiatives at Rudy's. Through the past campaigns, our team and guests have raised well-over $1,000,000 for various charities, mainly focused on supporting military related causes and breast cancer related charities.
With the imminent need for financial support to rebuild the impacted areas, we have postponed the upcoming Pink "Cup for a Cause” campaign to February of 2018. Our team is working steadfast on an all new Texas "Cup for a Cause". This cup will raise funds for the Texas gulf region’s rebuilding efforts and we plan to launch nationwide by October 1st.
Our goal on this initiative is to raise over $100,000 which we will match up to the first $50,000 raised.
By simply donating $1 to the selected charities*, our guests will receive a free drink on their next visit, walk away with a beautiful Texas cup and help Texas rebuild.
