Rudy's hopes to raise $50,000 for breast cancer foundation

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q is hoping to raise $50,000 this month for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. To help, they are changing the color of their iconic plastic cups to pink.

Guests who make a minimum donation of $1 will receive a free 32-ounce drink.

The company will also donate another dollar for every new Facebook "like" and Twitter follower they receive.

This is the first time in the history of Rudy's Bar-B-Q that it has changed the color of its cups to raise awareness and funds for a charitable organization. 

"Breast cancer affects many lives and we are grateful for Rudy's Bar-B-Q's commitment in raising funds for our organization," said Janelle Hail, Founder and CEO of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. "Every dollar donated makes a difference in our fight against breast cancer."
