Window World Donates $4 Million to St. JudeDecember 20th, 2013 | Category: Industry News
Window World® held its fourth annual “Window World Day” at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® Wednesday, Dec. 11. During the day’s festivities, Window World Inc. chairman and CEO Tammy Whitworth presented St. Jude with a check for $4 million, in honor of the company’s total fundraising for the hospital to date. 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 $4-million mark is an exciting milestone for Window World, covering more than two full days of operating costs for St. Jude. Pat Wyatt, Chief Development Officer of ALSAC (the fundraising organization for St. Jude) said during the morning welcome, “Most of all, I want to thank you, the heart and soul of Window World, who truly are a part of the heart and soul of St. Jude. We thank you for everything you do.”
Later that afternoon, Window World hosted “A Blue Suede Holiday” party for the patients of St. Jude and their families.
