Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q Cup for A Cause Shatters Fundraising Record With More Than $186,000 Raised in October for Breast Cancer Charities

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2015) - Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q® raised a record amount of $186,347 in October through its annual Pink Cup for A Cause fundraising campaign during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month shattering last year's total of $141,988.

This year, Rudy's Bar-B-Q's Pink Cup for A Cause raised funds for several breast cancer charities that are located within a participating Rudy's location or market. Funds were raised by guests who visited Rudy's Bar-B-Q in October and donated a dollar at checkout. In return, guests received a coupon for a free 32 oz. drink that they can use on their next visit.

"We are humbled by the support our guests showed for our breast cancer charity partners and thank them for their generosity," said Pete Bassett, VP of Operations at Rudy's Bar-B-Q. "With the funds raised through Cup for A Cause, many women affected by breast cancer and their families will be helped."

Since October 2012, Rudy's Bar-B-Q has transformed their famous plastic cups into the color pink to highlight the Cup for A Cause fundraising campaign for breast cancer. Since then, the Pink Cup for A Cause program has raised more than $500,000 for various breast cancer organizations.
