Team Cone hosted their first Spring Rib Sale to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at their Tallahassee warehouse. Because of the generosity of those who participated, Team Cone raised $4,136 dollars in charitable donations.
Team Cone raised this donation through the efforts of teammates who organized, cooked, and sold ribs and Boston butts in exchange for charitable donations. “I really appreciate all of the people who helped make this Rib Sale so great,” said Kenny Kinsey, Area Sales Manager for Cone Distributing Tallahassee. “Chris Yates, Steve Verhage, Teddy Brown all worked hard to make this event such a success. We’d also like to thank Sherriff Jared Miller and Captain Dale Evans of the Wakulla County Sherriff’s Office for their help and participation.”
The Spring Rib Sale is part of Team Cone’s 2021 company-wide fundraising goal to make an impactful donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 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 during the course of the year 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.
