National Fundraiser Benefitting St. Jude Children's Research HospitalPinot's Palette, will join the fight against childhood cancer by hosting a national fundraising event on Wednesday, September 28th, benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and during the company-wide Painting It Forward event, Pinot's Palette studios across the United States will donate $15 per seat reservation to St. Jude.
St. Jude was selected as the recipient of this year's Paint It Forward campaign because of the hospital's success in finding ways t improve the survival rate of its young patients. This year, nearly 16,000 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer and one in five won't survive. Meanwhile, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened in 1962.
