Default ^ 5th Annual St. Jude Children's Hospital Fundraiser ^ FINAL: $75,000 ^

Because of the support of the Corvette Forum, our members have donated over $147,000, during the past 4 years to help the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. With a annual budget in excess of $438 million dollars, St. Jude Hospital relies on fundraiser's to help offset their costs.
http://www.stjude.org/

The CF has watched our efforts grow during the past 4 years. In 2003 and 2004, we raised over $24,000. In 2005, $38,000, and last year, with 75 Corvette's from all generations on hand, a check from Administrator cor07vette (Jesse) for $61,000, was presented to Dr. Brian Sorrentino, a corvette owner and the Director of Hematology at St. Jude.

Our fundraiser last year was in honor of Tyler Pilon, a young man who lost his battle with cancer in December 2005 at the age of 15. Tyler's family flew in from Colorado and Florida to be on hand for the presentation. Trying to describe the feeling of having them there is beyond words.

Here's some pictures from last years presentation:
http://www.stjude.org/images-stjude/..._21731,00.html

Our goal this year is to break $61,000, and we're confident that we can

cor07vette (Jesse) has been in contact with the fundraising branch of St. Jude (ALSAC), and they have offered to do whatever they can to assist.

He has also recommended to ALSAC, that we commission a St. Jude motorcycle from Orange County Choppers, and that the ALSAC team contact Jay Leno to see if he would bring the motorcycle on his show for celebrity guests signatures and a subsequent auction on ebay. Jay Leno has done this in the past for 911 and Katrina victims.

With paypal charging 3% administrative fee's on all transactions, we have decided to received donations in the following manner:

Personal checks, cashier checks, or money orders, made out to: St. Jude Children's Hospital and mailed to:

Robert Briggs
P.O. Box 17083
Clearwater Fl 33762

Please put your forum name on the memo line of the check. Checks made out to St. Jude will be the only method of payment to assist with your tax deduction.


This fundraiser will run until the first week of October 2007, at which time another thread will be created inviting all members to join us in Memphis, TN. for the official presentation.

cor07vette and I invite any help from our members in making this the most successful fundraiser yet

Thank you for your anticipated support

I say we do a car detailing day. I'd be more than happy to wax as many vettes as possible, each donating to St. Judes. Hell, I wax 6-8 cars of family members every Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Come to think of it, THAT might be a great idea for Cruise-in 8!!!! That mobile detailer last year made a TON of money. If WE did the washing and waxing, the money could go to St. Judes. I'll volunteer my time.

We could do it at my house. I'll supply the water, wax and towels. I'd love to see a bunch of Vettes in my neighborhood. Piss off the Mother fkucer across the street. Hell, we could have a cookout to boot. Kinda like EG's mod party.

No dates yet, but with the nice winter weather, any time in the next month is fine. Sundays are great for me too.
