$23 donations enter fans to win the ultimate Dr Pepper fan experience including induction into the Dr Pepper Museum “Hall of Fame” and participation in a commercial

FRISCO, Texas, November 9, 2021 – Dr Pepper today announced the launch of the first-ever FANraiser Sweepstakes, a fundraising initiative on behalf of Scholarship America, which has facilitated distributing $4.5 billion in scholarships in 60 years, benefitting deserving students. Beginning today and running through November 23, 2021, the public is invited to enter the FANraiser by submitting a $23 donation to Scholarship America, a nod to Dr Pepper’s 23 flavor combination. To encourage donations, the brand is offering donors the chance to win the ultimate Dr Pepper fan experience, which includes induction into the Dr Pepper Museum “Hall of Fame” and participation in a commercial as an extra.

Each donation of $231 signifies one ‘entry’ to win the following grand prize:

  • Winner will be inducted to the Dr Pepper Museum “Hall of Fame” as 2021’s “Ultimate Dr Pepper Fan” including a framed portrait and passes to the Extreme Pepper Experience
  • Participation as a Dr Pepper commercial extra with a trip for two to the set location
  • Dr Pepper FANtastic Chocolate kit featuring the exclusive, limited run flavor

The new FANraiser builds off the brand’s longstanding Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway, which has provided over $12MM in tuition to deserving students across the country. In addition to the grand prize package, Dr Pepper will match donations up to $23,000 and award nine other winners with Dr Pepper FANtastic Chocolate kits.

“Supporting education is a top priority for Dr Pepper,” said Derek Dabrowski, Vice President of Brand Marketing for Dr Pepper. “The FAN-raiser Sweepstakes is a fun opportunity for our fans to become a Dr Pepper brand celebrity while contributing to a great cause like Scholarship America.”
