Default **17th Annual CF St. Jude Fundraiser **

Fellow members it is time for our annual fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Sadly, this year we had added another option for donations - on November 16, 2018, we lost a fellow member and the Director of Hematology at St. Jude, Dr. Brian Sorrentino: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...piral-bri.html

In his memory, thanks to your donations we have purchased a $4,500 - 16” X 16” brick to be placed in the Pathway to Hope at St. Jude from his friends at CorvetteForum. Brick funding will be used for a new Kay Research and Care Center which is designated to help in ushering in a new age of healing and cures for some of the world's sickest children.

Here is our past 16 years bringing our grand total to: $1,272,908.43

2003 - $23,500
2004 - $23,800
2005 - $38,000
2006 - $61,000
2007 - $75,000
2008 - $100,500
2009 - $100,501
2010 - $77,600
2011 - $80,304
2012 - $70,101
2013 - $101,835
2014 - $102,460
2015 - $149.555 - the year we crossed the $1,000,000 mark in total donations
2016 - $92,056
2017 - $100,088
2018 - $ 76,606

(Option #1) - Our designated link - "Corvettes 4 St. Jude" with a paypal option: https://tinyurl.com/y7dzsx3m

Click on Make a Gift - Credit Card or PAYPAL can be used with this option.

Please note, there is no place to add your user name when using the St. Jude Donor page, so, please post in this thread that this option was used, or PM "Jesse" or “pewter99” so that we can add your '19 St. Jude Donor tag. This will also assist with record keeping. Thank you!

(Option #2) - Personal checks, cashier checks, or money orders, made out to: St. Jude Children's Hospital and mailed to Organizer "pewter99"
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY DO NOT WRITE CORVETTES 4 ST JUDE ON THE ENVELOPE....THE USPS HAS DECIDED TO BE DOUCHEBAGS AND CALL IT A BUSINESS ACCOUNT

Robert Briggs
P.O. Box 17083
Clearwater FL. 33762

All donations are tax deductible and St. Jude will send you the a receipt for tax purposes.

Please post in the thread when you make a donation and advise what option you used


As always a heartfelt thank you to our members and vendors for helping save not only the children of St. Jude but children all around the world.

to be clear, the brick funds still count towards our total but we cannot divert funds from the Cruisin For St Jude donation link to the brick fund but we can use any overage for the brick towards the main fundraising effort.....the difference is where I send the money at St Jude...the checks I get for normal donations go to one address and the brick funding goes to another but it all ends up in the same place in the end

I will post an update on brick funds as I get checks...from the PO box.....usually Wed-Sat.

Just did Option 1 toward the Forum total and a similar check is in the mail to pewter99 toward the brick for Dr. Sorrentino. Really appreciate all of the effort that Robert and the other mods put into this effort every year. Thank you!
