Window World Celebrates Fifth Annual ‘Window World Day’ With Patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 10th, 2014 — Window World®, America’s largest replacement window and exterior remodeling company, celebrated the fifth annual “Window World Day” Thursday, Dec. 4, along with patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
The “Jingle Bell Jamboree” themed party was a celebration to honor the patients of St. Jude and their families. The Window World team, comprised of representatives from locations nationwide, hosted various activities, including arts and crafts, a toy giveaway, lunch, a photo booth and live country music.
Window World’s philanthropic efforts are spearheaded by its charitable foundation, Window World Cares®, which provides year-round support for St. Jude. During Window World Day, Chairman and CEO Tammy Whitworth presented the hospital with a check for $4.7 million, in honor of the company’s total fundraising for the hospital to date. This amount does not include the $106,000 raised for the recent St. Jude Give thanks. Walk.™ in late November.
“St. Jude is a place of miracles. We are constantly amazed by the stories of hope and are so grateful to be a part of it,” said Whitworth. “It’s inspiring to see our families, the patients’ and Window World’s, coming together at this event.”
Also on display at St. Jude was The Window World Stinger, a centennial tribute to the first winning Indianapolis 500 car, the 1911 Marmon Wasp. Currently finishing its nationwide tour to obtain signatures from every living Indy 500 driver, the car is slated for auction in 2015, with 100 percent of the purchase price to benefit St. Jude. At this time, The Stinger features 245 of the possible 270 starter signatures.
