Ashley and Chili's Restaurant Partner for St. Jude's (October, 2007)

Ashley students support St. Jude HospitalEvery September Chili’s raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, an important Cancer Treatment Center for children.  St. Jude has an unconditional love for children diagnosed with cancer and will not turn any child away.  If a child does not have insurance, they receive treatment for free.  It costs over $1 million dollars a day to operate St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This year Ashley Elementary partnered with Chili’s to help raise money for this remarkable research center.  The students raised $615, many students donating their allowance and asking parents to match funds.  The compassion and empathy that Ashley students demonstrated was overwhelming, according to school faculty.   Chili’s raised over 7 million dollars this year for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.   For more information about St Jude’s Research Hospital visit their site www.stjude.org .
