M&I Raises over $5,000 for St. Jude Children's Hospital
Over $19,000 raised by the bank since 2008
INDIANAPOLIS, June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- During a recent fundraiser, M&I, a part of BMO Financial Group, raised nearly $5,200 in support of St. Jude Children's Hospital. The star of the fundraising was the Zionsville branch that raised $2,218 thanks to some clever fundraising tactics.
The Zionsville branch held a silent auction with items donated by customers and employees. "Local businesses started competing to give items for the auction when they saw what we were doing," said Jo Eva Freeman, branch manager at the Zionsville branch.
"Every dollar received, helps to support the free patient care at St. Jude and research to help find cures to catastrophic pediatric illnesses," said Susie Tatum, and Event Marketing Representative for ALSAC/ St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "All the M&I branches and the Zionsville branch in particular showed great imagination in fundraising. I'm looking forward to next year."
M&I has been fundraising for the organization since 2008 and has raised over $19,000 during that time.
Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries.
