Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q Kicks Off 4th Annual Pink Cup for A Cause to Raise Funds for Breast Cancer Charities in October

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2015) - Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q® is changing the color of their popular plastic cups for the fourth consecutive year to the color "pink" to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer charities in October. This year, Rudy's Bar-B-Q is raising funds for several breast cancer nonprofits that are within a participating Rudy's Bar-B-Q location or market during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Funds are raised from guests who donate a dollar at Rudy's Bar-B-Q. In return for their donation, they will receive a coupon for a free large drink that can be used on their next visit. All large drink orders purchased in October are served in the eye-catching Rudy's Bar-B-Q Pink Cup. The Pink Cups are only available while supplies last.

"Since launching our Cup for A Cause program in 2012 for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Rudy's Bar-B-Q has raised more funds each year for our charity partners from our guests making a one dollar donation at the counter," said Pete Bassett, VP of Operations at Rudy's Bar-B-Q. "For the first time, we are raising funds for breast cancer charities that are located within a participating Rudy's Bar-B-Q store to show our support for the communities we serve and love."

Each participating Rudy's Bar-B-Q store is raising funds for a designated charity that supports breast cancer patients, survivors or research. Here's the list of participating Rudy's Bar-B-Q locations and their designated charity:
