Congratulations to the Winner of our Dr Pepper $10,000 Tuition Contest!

Barro’s Pizza is excited to announce the winner of the 2016 Arizona Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway, Sara M., who was awarded the $10,000 tuition prize.

Sara is a wife and mother who works full-time for the City of Phoenix and is also a full-time student. She has three Associate’s Degrees and a Bachelor’s Degree and plans to use her prize to pay off part of some of her student loans.

“I love Barro’s Pizza and Dr Pepper is my favorite drink,” said Sara. “I am so glad that I won this as it will help me pay some of my debt towards school.”

With 37 restaurants throughout Arizona and more than 35 years in business, the Barro family prides itself on finding ways to support and improve the communities they serve.

“A college degree opens many doors for people, but can also be a financial burden,” said Bruce Barro, co-owner of Barro’s Pizza. “Our continued partnership with Dr Pepper allows us to proudly support Arizona students like Sara and help cover the costs of higher education.”

Submissions were open to all Arizona residents and a winner was chosen at random out of more than 10,000 entries.

The program is part of the annual Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway, which has awarded more than $8 million to students across the nation since 2008. For more information about the Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway, visit www.drpeppertuition.com.
