Greystar announced today that their national fundraising drive raised $691,541 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the world’s premier centers for research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other deadly diseases.
Greystar’s partnership and fundraising efforts for St. Jude began last year, and resulted in a donation of $250,000. Greystar’s goal for 2011 was to raise $550,000, the average cost for treating a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer. The campaign’s original goal of $550,000 was surpassed with the help of team members, residents and vendors nationwide.
“The money raised from last year’s fundraising drive exceeded all our expectations and we are delighted to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Bob Faith, founder and CEO of Greystar. “I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to making the charity drive such a tremendous success.”
Greystar has developed a strategic partnership with St. Jude in an effort to raise funds to fight pediatric cancer and other deadly diseases. Since opening their doors 50 years ago, St. Jude has made great discoveries in how to treat deadly childhood diseases like cancer, saving the lives of children around the world, and no family ever pays St. Jude for care. The relationship with St. Jude provides Greystar team members, residents and individuals throughout the country with a simple and effective way to make a lasting national impact on the lives of others.
