Casey's Halloween Promotion Raises $1 Million To Support St. Jude

Casey’s General Stores, Inc. (Casey’s) is pleased to announce that during the month of October $1,015,466 was raised in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (St. Jude) far surpassing the original goal of $700,000. Customers showed their support by donating $1 for a pumpkin pin-up at any Casey’s store. In addition to generous customer support, MillerCoors donated 20 cents per case of Coors Light and Miller Lite sold in October at Casey’s locations, which totaled $24,688.

“We are thrilled with the results of our St. Jude Halloween Promotion and want to thank and recognize our customers for their contributions,” said Robert J. Myers, president and CEO of Casey’s. “With the generous support of our customers and partner, MillerCoors, we help ensure that no child is ever turned away from treatment at St. Jude.”

Casey’s has partnered with St. Jude for the last 12 years with customer donations and partner sponsorships reaching more than $4.3 million during that time.

St. Jude is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Ranked one of the best pediatric cancer hospitals in the country, St. Jude is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.
