Rudy’s Bar-B-Q’s Camo Cup for A Cause Raises Funds for The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, the Lone Survivor Foundation, and the American Widow Project in May!
Houston, Texas, April 29, 2015 – For the third consecutive year this May, Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q is transforming their iconic plastic cups into camo colors to raise awareness and funds to benefit military charities. This year’s Rudy’s Camo Cup for A Cause beneficiaries are The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, the Lone Survivor Foundation and the American Widow Project.
The funds are raised through guest donations at participating Rudy’s Bar-B-Q locations. Guests who donate a dollar for the cause will receive a coupon for a free large drink that can be used on their visit. All the funds raised in May will be donated and divided by the three charities.
To determine how donations are divided, Rudy’s guests are asked to vote for their favorite charity by visiting Rudy’s Bar-B-Q’s Facebook Page and clicking on the “Poll” tab. Facebook users can vote once a day every day until voting closes at midnight (Central Time) of May 31st. The charity with the most votes will receive 45% of the total amount raised while second and third place finishers will receive 35% and 20% respectively ensuring that each organization receives a significant financial contribution.
“Rudy’s Bar-B-Q is grateful for the sacrifices our veterans, active duty service men and women, and their families have made and continue to make for our country. It is a great privilege to give back to three Texas-based military nonprofits that help our nation’s heroes and their families,” said Pete Bassett, VP of Operations at Rudy’s Bar-B-Q. “We are also thankful for the support that Rudy’s Camo Cup for A Cause has received from our staff and guests who have made it a huge success each year.”
Last year’s Rudy’s Camo Cup for A Cause raised over $90,000. Rudy’s Cup for A Cause fundraising program is held each May for military charities and October for breast cancer charities. The program raised a record amount of more than $140,000 last October and has donated more than $500,000 since its launch in October 2012, when Rudy’s Bar-B-Q changed its cups into color Pink for the first time.
