OnCue Raises $275,00 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®

OnCue raises over $275,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® during the ‘spooktacular’ annual fall fundraiser.

Stillwater, OK - (November 23, 2020) – OnCue collected an astounding $275,000 during the annual St. Jude Halloween Promotion to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

During October, participating restaurants and retail locations asked customers to donate at the register to support the hospital’s lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children. In exchange for contributing $1 or more, patrons received a Halloween-themed pinup displaying an adorable St. Jude patient.

OnCue has raised an incredible $2,613,664 for St. Jude throughout their 13-year partnership, making them the largest regional partner for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. In addition to participating in the Halloween promotion this year, OnCue initiated a change rounding program in response to the national coin shortage. OnCue also continued to sell its limited-edition co-branded cup benefiting St. Jude for the third year in a row.

“The work done at St. Jude continues to amaze us and each year our hearts grow bigger for its mission,” said Laura Aufleger, OnCue President. “There is nothing more impactful than the moment when a family says thank you for another birthday or holiday with their child. It reminds us that there is more to be done to ensure that no child dies from cancer. Thank you to all our dedicated employees and customers who play a critical role in this effort.”

Treatments invented at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food because of fundraisers like the St. Jude Halloween Promotion.
