Window World will be throwing a holiday party for 200 children who are receiving treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The national window dealer will be delivering gifts to the children and donating more than $1 million to the hospital. A party will be hosted on December 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at St. Jude’s Memphis, Tenn., location.

John Andretti, a race car driver and cancer patient himself, will be in attendance to meet the children and deliver gifts. Volunteers will be dressed in Santa suits, interacting with the children and their families.

Over the last 10 years, Window World has donated over $9 million to St. Jude through the Window World Cares initiative.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support Window World Cares has offered St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital over the past decade,” says Richard Shadyac, Jr., president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Anything that puts a smile on a child’s face in turn boosts his or her strength and Window World has played such a key role in our mission. Charitable contributions from organizations like Window World Cares help us continue the groundbreaking research and treatment for children everywhere with childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”

Window World chairman and CEO, Tammy Whitworth, and her late husband, Todd, started Window World Cares in 2008, inspired by the premature birth of their first child, Anna Grace, in 1999. The Whitworth’s partnered with St. Jude after the experience.

“There is no greater concern for a parent than having a child battle a life-threatening illness,” says Tammy. “St. Jude offers children hope for the future while removing the financial burden. We at Window World are passionately committed to helping further St. Jude’s mission.”
