HOUSTON, October 1st, 2018 – One year ago today, Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q postponed their annual Pink “Cup for a Cause” Campaign to launch Texas “Cup for A Cause” and raised over $180,000 for Hurricane Harvey relief. Today, they are bringing the iconic Pink Cup back to October.
Since launching the first Cup for A Cause campaign in October 2012, Rudy’s has raised over $1.6million for breast cancer, military charities, and hurricane relief. Over the next month, they hope to increase the amount raised by asking guests to donate $1 to their breast cancer charity partners. Guests who donate receive a coupon for a free large drink to be used on their next visit.
“The Cup for A Cause campaign is proof that a dollar can make a difference,” said Pete Bassett, VP of Operations at Rudy’s. “We are grateful to all our charity partners, guests, and team members who help us raise funds and awareness during the month of October.”
This October, participating Rudy’s Texas locations are raising funds for the following:
Amarillo, El Paso, and Lubbock – Panhandle Breast Health
