THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
St. Jude Bowl-A-Thon at Wausaukee Feb. 11
Issue Date: February 7, 2018
Religious education students at St. Augustine and St. Agnes Churches will hold their 6th annual St. Jude Bowl-A-Thon on Sunday, Feb. 11th. Participants will turn in their donations for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and enjoy a free game of bowling, provided by Wausaukee Bowl owner Joe Schlies.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Its founder, Danny Thomas, believed that "no child should die in the dawn of life", and St. Jude has spent more than half a century focusing on their mission: Finding cures. Saving Children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% in 1962, to more than 80% today.
Donations are vital because families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. The hospital relies on the generosity of donors to cover its operating expenses. To help St. Jude continue it's life-saving treatment for children, religious education students are accepting donations for the Feb. 11th Bowl-A-Thon. If persons would like to make a tax-deductible donation, mail a check, made payable to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, to: St. Augustine, 507 Church St., Wausaukee, WI 54177.
