TA and Petro Raise More Than $445,000 for St. Jude Children's Hospital
Thanks to the generosity of drivers across the country, TA and Petro raised $446,373 for the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in October through its 16th annual Halloween Pumpkin Promotion.
Visitors to TA and Petro were asked to make a $1 donation to St. Jude to support its fight against catastrophic childhood diseases. Customers could make the donation while dining at the company’s full-service and quick-service restaurants or while visiting the travel stores. In return, the donors had the opportunity to write their names on pumpkin-themed pinups, which were displayed through the month of October. TA and Petro employees also donated at the company’s Westlake, Ohio headquarters and at each travel center location.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities throughout the world. No family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fund-raising organization.
