How funds are raised for A&W Cruisin’ for a Cause – Year Round
Just because August 23rd has come and gone doesn't mean A&W has stopped fundraising. Many A&W locations will continue to raise money all year through donation mugs. Stop by your local restaurant throughout the year for a tasty treat and drop a dollar or two in the big root beer donation mugs!
