MEMPHIS, Tenn. — For the second year, Reed & Associates Marketing, Inc. (R&A) attended the St. Jude Presents John Rich & Friends Concert, held on Tuesday, June 3 and the Window World Pro-Am at the 57th annual FedEx St. Jude Classic PGA TOUR event at TPC Southwind the following day, with client Window World®. Both events benefitted St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.
The St. Jude Presents John Rich & Friends Concert featured talent from John Rich, Big & Rich, Clint Black, Randy Houser, Deana Carter, Cowboy Troy and a surprise appearance by Robby Krieger, guitarist for The Doors. R&A donated $500 to the hospital during the live auction portion of the evening, which covers the cost of two transfusion units of red blood cells for a St. Jude patient.
The Window World Pro-Am Tournament took place Wednesday, June 4 at the TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tenn. R&A helped with the coordination and execution of the first annual Window World “Art from the Heart” window-painting event. Throughout the afternoon, R&A members assisted St. Jude patients in hand-painting messages of hope on custom Window World windows at the 11th tee box. President and Reed & Associates Marketing Co-Owner, Ashley Knepper, said of the day, “Not only was spending the afternoon with St. Jude patients and their families a blast, we were also moved by their remarkable stories of hope and perseverance. Events like this only further ignite and deepen our commitment to St. Jude’s life-saving mission.”
This is one of many St. Jude events R&A actively participates in throughout the year. Last fall, the Reed & Associates Marketing team was named the top 2013 St. Jude Give thanks. Walk fundraiser in the Hampton Roads area, raising more than $10,000 for the hospital.
