Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q to Surpass $1 Million in Funds Raised with Pink Cup for A Cause Campaign for Breast Cancer Charities

Pink Cups Only Available in October While Supplies Last


What started out as a printing mistake of Rudy’s famous plastic cups sparked the idea to launch Cup for A Cause, Rudy’s corporate giving program, which is now on the verge of raising $1 million for various breast cancer and military charities.

Since launching the first Cup for A Cause campaign in October 2012, Rudy’s Bar-B-Q has raised nearly $940,000 for breast cancer and military charities. This October, Rudy’s Bar-B-Q expects to surpass the million-dollar mark with Pink Cup for A Cause raising funds for their breast cancer charity partners. Funds are raised through dollar donations from guests who receive a coupon for a free large drink on their next visit.



“We are very proud that Cup for A Cause will reach the $1 million mark in total funds raised this October – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month – the month we introduced the program five years ago,” said Pete Bassett, VP of Operations at Rudy’s Bar-B-Q. “We are grateful to all our charity partners and guests who have embraced Cup for A Cause right from the start. It is proof that even a dollar can make a difference.”


This October, participating Rudy’s Bar-B-Q locations are raising funds for:



Chandler/Goodyear -- Check for A Lump!



Colorado Springs/Greeley – Mary Lou Beshears Breast Care Center at Memorial Hospital



Amarillo – Amarillo Area Breast Health Coalition

Dallas-Area – National Breast Cancer Foundation

Lubbock – Arrington Breast Center

Central/North Texas – Baylor Scott & White McClinton Cancer Center

South Texas/West Texas – American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer



Oklahoma City/Norman – Oklahoma Project Woman

Most recently, Rudy’s Camo Cup for A Cause raised more than $157,000 for various military charities in May and Pink Cup for A Cause in October 2015 raised a record $186,347 for their breast cancer charity partners.
