Pekin Insurance Birdies for St. Jude
Pekin Insurance is teaming up with D.A. Points, PGA TOUR professional, for a Birdies for St. Jude fundraiser. Sponsoring Birdies for St. Jude will transform your dollars into the reality of supporting the heroic efforts of St. Jude. With D.A.’s 2015 PGA TOUR season in full swing, this is the perfect opportunitee to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer or other life-threatening diseases.
ABOUT ST. JUDESt. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
Here’s how Birdies for St. Jude works:You choose how much you want to sponsor for every Birdie and Eagle that D.A. makes during his 2014 PGA TOUR season. Thus, you will be choosing the amount of money you will be giving to help children fight the battle of their young lives. At the end of the golf season, we will tally up D.A.’s totals and inform you of your sponsorship commitment.
D.A. POINTS’ 2015 BIRDIES & EAGLES: BIRDIES – 65, EAGLES – 2 (as of 2-15-15)
In 2014, these were D.A.’s stats:
“Every day I watch my children play, sleep, eat, laugh, and do all the things that a normal children would do. I know I take it for granted, but when I hear about the children of St. Jude who fight for their lives every day, I realize how thankful I am that my children are healthy. However, we never know when the tide may turn, and I would want St. Jude taking care of my children should they fall victim to a devastating disease. I am proud to be teamed up with Pekin Insurance for this worthwhile event. Please help with the life-saving work of St. Jude.”
