Pratt Place Inn and Barn is partnering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the second year for their 2nd annual St. Jude Signature Bash! We have happily donated the Barn to help raise money for this amazing organization.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital truly is one of a kind. Located in Memphis, Tennessee, it is the only hospital designated as a comprehensive cancer center devoted solely to children. For over 40 years they have been researching treatment and prevention of cancer in children. At St. Jude, families never have to pay for treatments not covered by insurance, nor are they ever denied treatment due to an inability to pay. This truly is a generous and life-saving organization!
St. Jude has a daily operating cost of $1.6 million. Most of this money is received from donations. Friends of St. Jude is a group of individuals all over the United States that helps raise money for St. Jude by developing fundraisers.
Northwest Arkansas has been quite active in raising money for St. Jude in the past year. Not only do we have our own NWA chapter of Friends of St. Jude, but we also participated in the radiothon in February, which raised more than $3.4 million for St. Jude! Also, Delta Delta Delta, Sorority of the University of Arkansas recently conducted their Pancake Pigout to benefit St. Jude.
Northwest Arkansas has another opportunity Friday, April 1, to donate to this great organization! The Friends of St. Jude in NWA, along with numerous organizations, are sponsoring the 2nd annual St. Jude Signature Bash. Tickets can be purchased at I.O. metro in Fayetteville and Rogers, or you can click here to order online. There will be dinner, drinks, and music by Ace’s Wild. You also will have the opportunity to participate in a live and silent auction. A trip to Orlando, a football signed by Lou Holtz or Bobby Petrino, and a $5,000 room makeover from I.O. Metro are just a few of the items that could be yours for the right price! If you are not able to attend the Signature Bash, you can still donate to St. Jude by clicking here.
Come out to Pratt Place Barn on Friday, April 1 to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital while having a great evening of bidding and dancing! We look forward to seeing you there!
