Bridgeview, Ill. -- 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 in February at an expo in Chicago, Illinois, followed by fundraising at two conferences in Texas, including Chain Store Age’s SPECS show, which will be held March 17 – 20, at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, and continuing at events in California and Georgia. SPECS conference attendees are encouraged to visit Rose Paving’s booth number 101 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 Children’s Research Hospital, which is to find cures and save children,” said C.B. Kuzlik, SVP, Rose Paving. “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.
