Ocala- and Tallahassee-based beer distributor Cone Distributing (Team Cone) combined forces with members of the community to raise the largest donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in company history: $73,577.
For the last ten years, Team Cone has worked together with bars, restaurants, and retailers to raise money for the ground-breaking research done at St. Jude.
“One of our most cherished Core Values is to give back with caring,” says Team Cone Vice President of Sales Charlie Ingrilli. “Hats off to our team and all they did to raise these funds. This truly was a team effort in 22 counties, and we could not have done it without our community and retail partners helping our teammates. Together, we hope we can continue to make a difference for St. Jude.”
This is the tenth year that Team Cone has hosted events and community activities throughout their 22-county footprint to make a large donation to the hospital. Each year the beer distributor has exceeded totals from the previous year.
Planning and progress are already underway for Team Cone’s 2019 St. Jude fundraisers. Team Cone’s goal in 2019 is an $80,000 donation.
