Window World Surpasses $1 Million in One Year ChallengeFebruary 14th, 2014 by DWM Magazine
Window World® announced that it has raised more than $1.03 million for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for its “$1 Million in One Year” challenge.
Donations from Window World customers, store owners, vendor partners and employees, combined with St. Jude events and sponsorships such as the annual Give Thanks Walk, John Rich and Friends Concert, Window World Pro-Am at the FedEx St. Jude Classic and the Window World Family Reunion helped achieve the goal. Funds were also donated by Window World, in association with The Stinger, its centennial tribute to the first winning Indianapolis 500 Car, the Marmon Wasp. Additionally, the company says it would like to recognize the thousands of sales representatives from more than 200 locations nationwide who worked diligently to garner customer donations during in-home demonstrations.
“To be able to say we reached the $1 million in one year mark speaks to the commitment of so many,” says Window World chairman and CEO Tammy Whitworth. “Knowing the amount of good—the number of children that will be helped with these funds—is truly rewarding, and we are so grateful to St. Jude for allowing us a part in its lifesaving mission each day.”
