Cone Distributing (Team Cone) donates $51,000 to Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
After numerous company-wide fundraisers and events held throughout Team Cone’s 22-county footprint, employees and leadership teammates are elated to give this donation to the children’s charity that has helped so many families. To date, Team Cone has donated over $186,000 dollars to Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital – with increasing donations each year since 2010.
“At Team Cone, one of Core Values is to Give Back With Caring, so we feel that this is a great cause to give to,” Vice President of Sales Charlie Ingrilli remarked. “We challenged our teammates and they responded with pride and vigor.” 2017 marks a company record for the most money that Team Cone has ever raised for the charity hospital.
Ingrilli says that Team Cone will attempt to break the company record for Saint Jude fundraising with the 2018 campaign.
