Team Cone’s Tallahassee Fall Rib Sale raises $12,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Team Cone’s Tallahassee Spring Rib Sale raises $13,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Team Cone’s Tallahassee teammates hosted their annual Fall Rib Sale to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at their Tallahassee warehouse. Because of the generosity of those who participated, the company raised over $13,000 dollars in charitable donations. 2022’s Rib Sales have broken company records – in fact the only fundraiser that raised more money than this Rib Sale was the Spring Rib Sale in Tallahassee, with both sales raising the most money in the history of the events. With both events and accompanying donations, Team Cone is close to their 2022 St. Jude fundraising goal of $40,000.

“Our team stepped up to the plate and hit a home run for St. Jude,” said Steve Beckwith, Cone Distributing’s Vice President of Operations. “Time after time, we are proud and thankful that our team, our suppliers, and our community all stand up to help us fundraise for this great charity.” Team Cone’s Area Sales Manager Kenny Kinsey was grateful he had so much help. “I know I can always count on my teammates to step up and help with this event,” Kinsey said.

“We have to thank all of the people who helped us with this event, Kim Boyer, Don Buie, Mike Faulkner, Kyle Barnes, Chris Yates, Stephen Beasley, Jim Anderson, Dan Waldman, and Steve Verhage. We also thank our company’s president, Mr. Doug Cone, for buying the meat for us to sell. Special thank yous to Wakulla County Sheriff Jared Miller, Mack’s Meats,  Centennial Bank, Dux’s Discount Liquor, Miller’s Tree Service, Callaway Auto, Residential Elevator, and Terri Fort of the Shell Point Community for all their help and contributions.”

The Fall Rib Sales in Ocala and Tallahassee are part of Team Cone’s annual company-wide fundraising goal to make an impactful donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Team Cone hosts two Rib Sales in both Ocala and Tallahassee, one sale in the Fall and one in the Spring. The global pandemic has presented new challenges to Team Cone’s event-based fundraisers, but the team remains committed to helping St. Jude and other charities fulfill their mission. The beer distributor continues to host safe events and fundraising drives to help raise funds for St. Jude and other charities in accordance with one of their Core Values: “Giving Back with Caring.”

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares discoveries made, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
