Rose Paving Co. to Raise Funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Rose Paving Company is set to support the efforts of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® through a multi-event fundraising campaign in 2013. Rose Paving will host a fundraising activity at industry trade shows and events across the country, giving registered attendees the opportunity to help support St. Jude’s mission to find cures for children with cancer and other deadly diseases through research and treatment.
Fundraising will kick off this month at the BOMA/Suburban Chicago (Building Owners and Managers Association) Expo on Thursday, February 28, in Oak Brook, Illinois, followed by fundraising in California, Florida, Georgia, and Texas. Conference attendees for the various trade shows are encouraged to visit Rose Paving’s booth during exhibit hours and autograph a banner in support of St. Jude. For each signature received, Rose Paving will donate $5 to St. Jude.
“We are excited to help raise awareness and funds to support the mission of St. Jude, which is to find cures and save children,” said Ed Campbell, Rose Paving president. “After a very successful fundraising campaign in 2012, we are grateful for the opportunity to continue our efforts throughout 2013.”
Since opening more than 50 years ago, St. Jude has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares its research discoveries with medical communities everywhere, so one child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide. And no family ever pays St. Jude for anything. With a daily operating cost of $1.8 million, St. Jude depends mostly on public contributions, like Rose Paving’s fundraising event.
