St. Jude Run/Walk After Party at Pinot's PalettePinot’s Palette® To Host Second National Fundraiser Sept. 28 - Benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®
Chicago (September 14, 2016) – Pinot's Palette, the first international franchisor of paint and sip studios in North America, will host a national fundraising event on September 28, 2016 at participating studios across the country in support of the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Finding cures. Saving children®. Pinot’s Palette is hosting its local fundraising event on Sept. 28 at all five Chicagoland locations - Glenview (The Glen), Logan Square, Naperville, South Barrington and West Loop.
During the Painting It Forward event, Pinot’s Palette studios will donate a minimum of $15 per seat reservation to St. Jude. Pinot’s Palette chose St. Jude because of the hospital’s success in finding ways to improve the survival rate of childhood cancers. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. The hospital is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital again,” said Charles Willis, Co-Founder and President of Pinot’s Palette. “The hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
This is the second year that all Pinot’s Palette studios have supported St. Jude on a national scale. Commitment to community and partners is one of the Pinot’s Palette values, and Painting It Forward is how local studios give back year-round.
Last year through the Pinot’s Palette campaign, over 1,500 participants raised more than $34,000 for St. Jude – surpassing the original goal of $30,000.
“Because the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from individual contributions, we know that the money we raise is having a direct impact on the lifesaving work the hospital is doing to fight childhood cancer,” Willis said. “We look forward to a larger event this year with even more participants raising funds to benefit this incredible organization.”
