Domino's Pizza® Raises $3.5 Million, Sets Annual Record For St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Domino's Pizza (NYSE: DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, raised more than $3.5 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital during the 2012 St. Jude Thanks and Giving ® campaign. This year's campaign brings Domino's total amount raised for St. Jude to over $16 million since the partnership was announced in 2004.

"Domino's Pizza stores across the country rallied around this year's campaign to reach a new fundraising record for Domino's Pizza," said J. Patrick Doyle, Domino's Pizza president and chief executive officer. "I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone – especially our customers, team members and franchise owners – who contributed during the campaign. Together we were able to raise much needed dollars to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude."

In addition to celebrating the 2012 fundraising record, St. Jude and Domino's Pizza recently unveiled the new Assessment and Triage Clinic Delivered by Domino's at St. Jude and celebrated Domino's commitment to raise $10 million over the next three years.

New for 2012, customers ordered the St. Jude Thanks and Giving ® Combo – a bundle that included a medium one-topping pizza, a one-topping Handmade Pan Pizza, a 16-piece order of Parmesan Bread Bites, a two-liter bottle of Coca-Cola ® and a $1 donation to St. Jude – for $19.99. Customers also had the option to text "PIZZA" to 50333 to donate $5 to St. Jude.

"I am thrilled that Domino's Pizza is a part of our St. Jude family and I am so grateful for the generous support we receive from Domino's Pizza and its employees and customers who have come together to help save the lives of children through our St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign," said Marlo Thomas, national outreach director for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "I am so inspired by what Domino's Pizza is able to achieve. And because of the hard work and dedication we receive from partners like Domino's Pizza, no family ever pays St. Jude for anything, and one child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide."

The St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, created in 2004 by Marlo Thomas and her siblings Terre and Tony, celebrates the season of giving by building attention and garnering funds for St. Jude during those months of busy holiday shopping. For eight years, Domino's Pizza has partnered with St. Jude; the funds raised during this campaign impact the lives of children in communities across the world, as St. Jude openly shares research discoveries directly with doctors and scientists everywhere.

"In just over eight years, Domino's has raised more than $16 million to support the efforts of St. Jude," said Doyle. "We continue to expand our reach to raise public awareness, and are excited to continue to have St. Jude as our national charitable partner."
