Rudy's Bar-B-Q's Cup for a Cause Brings the Return of the Camo Cup This May as Facebook Competition Among Its Three Military Charity Partners Heats Up

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - The Rudy's Bar-B-Q Camo Cups are now available at participating Rudy's locations. As part of its Cup for a Cause campaign this May, Rudy's Camo Cups feature its three national military charity partners namely, the American Widow Project, Homes for Our Troops and Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The three nonprofit organizations are currently competing for votes on Rudy's official Facebook page since April 1st.

Each of the three charities will divide the funds raised through the dollar donations from guests who purchase the limited edition Rudy's Camo Cup. The nonprofit with the most votes by midnight (Central) of May 31st will receive 50% of the total funds raised, 2nd place will receive 35%, and 3rd place will receive 15%. Therefore, none of Rudy's military charity partners will go home empty-handed.

"Rudy's Cup for a Cause has been a successful fundraising platform for our charity partners since its launch in October 2012, when we changed our cups to Pink to highlight breast cancer awareness," said Pete Bassett, VP of Operations at Rudy's Bar-B-Q. "We are confident our guests will get behind our Cup for a Cause effort this May to raise funds for three national military charities that are all helping our military, veterans and their families in different ways."

Guests who purchase a large drink at Rudy's Bar-B-Q in May will receive their drink in a Camo Cup. Guests who donate a dollar will be given a coupon for a free drink redeemable on their next visit.

This is the fourth Rudy's Cup for a Cause campaign. The last three fundraising efforts combined had raised more than $250,000 for Rudy's charity partners.

Rudy's guests with a Facebook account can continue voting for the charity of their choice once per day by visiting Rudy's Facebook page and clicking the "Poll" tab. For more information on a list of participating Rudy's locations, please visit: http://rudys.com/vote.
