Rudy's Tacos raises funds for cancer support group
Rudy's Tacos is raising money to offset the cost of prostate screenings and to help Quad-City families going through prostate cancer treatment. Donations will go to Us Too Greater Quad Cities, a local prostate cancer support group.
You have free articles remaining.
Money can be donated upon visiting Rudy's locations. When you donate, you'll receive coupons for your next visit. The restaurant's founder, Rudy Quijas, died at 55 from prostate cancer, so the cause is especially important to Rudy's Tacos.
