Window World Surpasses $5 Million Mark in Fundraising at St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends
North Wilkesboro, N.C., June 11th, 2015 – For the fourth consecutive year, Window World®, America’s largest replacement window and exterior remodeling company, was the national presenting sponsor of the St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends concert.
The event showcased legendary talent, including Big & Rich, Lorrie Morgan, T.G. Sheppard, John Conlee, Lee Greenwood and Frankie Ballard for a one-of-a-kind musical performance. Additionally, the show featured the comedy duo Williams & Ree.
On top of the extraordinary concert, Tuesday’s event also marked a very special accomplishment. During the festivities, Window World Chairman and CEO, Tammy Whitworth presented St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® with a check for $50,000, bringing the company’s total fundraising for the hospital to over $5 million. Window World’s philanthropic efforts are spearheaded by its charitable foundation, Window World Cares®, founded in 2008 by Whitworth and her late husband, Todd.
The $5 million mark is not only an incredible milestone for Window World, but for St. Jude as well. St. Jude relies on the support of partners and donors to ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
“Window World has been an incredible partner for St. Jude since 2008, and we are grateful for their generous support of our efforts to find cures and save children fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., president and CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “We commend Window World’s milestone and are grateful for their national presenting sponsorship of the St. Jude Presents John Rich and Friends concert for the past four years. Their enthusiasm and dedication to our mission are truly inspiring, and we appreciate everything they do for the kids of St. Jude.”
“This notable achievement is a true testament to the collaborative work between the Window World Family and St. Jude,” said Whitworth. “With over 200 Window World franchises nationwide, our partnership with the hospital is a great opportunity for our local stores to come together in support of the work this organization does every day.”« Back to All Press
