Cone Distributing (Team Cone) is proud to announce that their annual Fall Rib Sale to Benefit St. Jude has raised $11,700 for the non-profit hospital.
Teammates gathered at Cone Distributing’s Ocala warehouse on Saturday, October 9th to prepare and distribute pre-sold racks of ribs.
“We’re so proud of our team,” said Team Cone Vice President of Operations Steve Beckwith. “We know that we can make a difference to children in need with our actions, and our team stepped up with this rib sale. We had one teammate sell 50 racks of ribs!”
2021 marks the thirteenth year that Team Cone has hosted events and community activities throughout the 22 counties they serve to make a large donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The goal in 2021 is to continue the company’s legacy of community contribution by following their core value of continually “giving back with caring.”
Watch for Team Cone’s Tallahassee teammates – they will be hosting their Fall Rib Sale this weekend – October 16th. Team Cone Tallahassee’s 2021 Spring Rib Sale made $4,171 for St. Jude.
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.
