Las Vegas community and business leaders have joined together in the battle against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases by participating in STITCHED presents: Suit Up for St. Jude.
Each participant commits to raising $2,500 for the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® with incentives for the top fundraisers, including a package from STITCHED, Montblanc, Anne Fontaine and others. Participants include JRoc, MoJoe of iHeartradio, Blake Ferry of The Nomad Collective, Shawn Tempesta of KTNV’s Las Vegas Morning Blend, Brian Kip of SKC Group, Jennifer Bradley, JB Public Relations, Loren Gontero of Winning Realty and Jenna Nye of Off the Strip Las Vegas, among others.
Thanks to generous donors and campaigns like Suit Up for St. Jude, families will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
The community can support their favorite participant by donating to his or her fundraising team or making a donation by visiting STITCHED, located at the Cosmopolitan or Tivoli Village Las Vegas.
“My longtime personal belief, adopted as my corporate ethos and culture: With endless boundaries, always strive to give more than you take — Success without giving back is ultimately failure,” says Eamon Springall, Founder & President of STITCHED.
