PCH Gives Back – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® Golf Outing

PCH Gives Back At St Jude Children's Research Hospital Event
To end the “week of giving” here at the blog, we’re sharing a story of
PCH employees who recently gave back by participating in the
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® golf outing.
It’s a story you won’t want to miss!

Hey blog readers!

One of the greatest things about working here at Publishers Clearing House is that we have so many ways to give back to the community. In addition to making dreams come true for our many winners, we also love making dreams come true for charities, too. Especially when those charities are as amazing as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

And I’m so happy to say that just recently, I had the distinct pleasure of volunteering at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital “Father & Son” golf outing with a few of my coworkers. The event was held on September 26th at the Mill River Country Club in Oyster Bay, NY – and the minute I saw the crisp green lawn and awe-inspiring mansion I just knew this event would be something remarkable.

As someone who loves to give back and is passionate about the work that St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does for children across America, I was eager and excited to get to work. We quickly started putting together “goodie” bags for all the attendees, and even formed an assembly line to maximize our time. In addition to pamphlets containing important information about St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the work that they do, attendees were given all the necessities needed for a day at the course. Golf balls, ball markers and golf towels, all emblazoned with the logo of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, were included.

After the assembly line, Sam (a PCH employee who works in our Creative Department) and I were whisked away to go help set up the merchandise tables. A variety of apparel and other merchandise were for sale and it was our responsibility to set up the display. I folded the shirts, while Sam used his creative eye to display them (Thank goodness for that as he did a MUCH better job than I ever could!). Brooke and Kathleen (two other PCH employees who were with us that day) were helping with registration for the big event.

Later in the day, Brooke and Kathleen manned the “Hole in One” hole! Golfers who put in a donation had the chance to take a shot. If they were lucky enough to get a hole in one, they were rewarded with an AMAZING prize: a brand new car! It was so awesome seeing people having fun while a ton of money was being raised for the charity!

I guess that popular saying “time flies when you’re having fun” is true, because before I knew it, it was time to go home. We walked away feeling GREAT and proud to be a part of such a wonderful event.

As you read earlier this week on the blog, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of 3 charities that are participating in Publishers Clearing House’s The Give Back this year! So even if you aren’t able to participate in a golf outing or other volunteer event, you can head to the PCH Fan Page on Facebook and still show your support. Remember, we’re giving away over $100,000 to charity and you can vote every single day for the charity YOU want to win our grand prize: $50,000 CASH!

Whether you vote for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, The ASPCA®, or the USO, one thing is for sure: you too will walk away knowing YOU made a difference!

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital — St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.  St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since St. Jude opened more than 50 years ago.  St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

The Give Back promotion will run from October 28, 2013 – November 25, 2013.  St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, USO (United Service Organizations) and The ASPCA® (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) will each receive a guaranteed minimum contribution of $25,000. The maximum contribution for the winning charity is $50,000.

Hi! All three organizations are so important. Being a veteran I know how important the USO is for our service members. St. Jude is much needed for our children and families. And ASPCA is also desperately needed. It is great that PCH can donate to all three! To be involved and have fun with it is also a blessing. Voting is easy, it’s the deciding which one to vote for is hard.

Good morning Sarah S., it looks like you all have a wonderful time razing money and having a lot of fun doing it!!!

I just wanted to thank all of you for giving back, this is one of my favorite times of the year for me and PCH, because I really do not have money to give back so me voting is one way I can give back. Now, I am going to ask a silly question, I am not sure how I am voting is counting only because after I vote the graphic on Facebook does not go gray, it just stays the same colors. Anyway this is just so very exciting for me, even if I do not win just having my vote count for something that means so much to all of us, is the best thing ever!!!

Well just wanted to THANK YOU all again PCH and I will say it again you all have the best jobs around!!!

St. Jude’s always holds a special place in my prayers daily….for all the help and comfort they offer not just the child; but with others help (such as Ronald McDonald House, Target House, the Memphis Grizzlies House, even some hotels, etc.) the families too. This is HUGE is the healing process.
Wado(Thank you) for Giving Back, Publisher’s Clearing House!

To everyone at PCH, I think it’s a wonderful, amazing thing that you do for people and Charities. All 3 Charities are important and would mean so much to each of them too receive a large donation from PCH. It was very hard to pick 1 out of the 3 since they are all equally of such great need for the cause. I look forward to playing PCH everyday and hoping that I will be blessed with a miracle and I always read and follow the good things PCH does for people. Thank you for offering a free chance of having a dream come true. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and best of luck to the 3 charities chosen to receive a blessing most deserving in their nature. :)
