Window World Raises Funds for St. Jude Hospital

June 16th, 2016 by Editor

Window World continues its support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with its recent sponsorship of St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends.

Earlier this month, the fifth annual St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends event took place in Memphis. A mix of celebrity appearances, music, philanthropy and fun, this event assisted the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. A full slate of performers helped drive awareness and raise funds for the hospital in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

“We are honored that Window World once again agreed to be presenting sponsor of this year’s St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends, an inspiring evening of music that is part of a week full of golf events supporting our patients and families,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Window World continues to be an incredibly dedicated partner, helping St. Jude continue its lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving the lives of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases around the world.”

Window World has signed on as the national presenting sponsor of the event every year since its inception in 2011. As part of the sponsorship, Window World Chairman and CEO, Tammy Whitworth, presented St. Jude with a check for $55,000 on behalf of Window World’s charitable arm, Window World Cares, for the fifth year in a row. The latest amount brings the company’s total fundraising for the hospital to more than $7 million.

“The entire Window World Family is extremely passionate about St. Jude,” said Whitworth. “From local events to national sponsorships, Window World continues to seek out ways to advocate for the hospital. This celebration is one of our favorites, combining an enjoyable evening, great music and a worthy cause.”
