We’re doing this for fun, but we’re also doing this for a good cause. We at Nightmare Nights Dallas think that the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one to support.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s vision is to be the world leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of catastrophic diseases in children. This vision will be pursued by providing outstanding patient care; by conducting basic, translational and clinical research designed to elucidate biological mechanisms, understand disease pathogenesis, improve diagnosis, enhance treatment outcome, prevent diseases and minimize adverse consequences of treatment; and by educating health care and scientific research professionals. Through these efforts we seek to cure and enhance the quality of life for an increasing proportion of children who come to us for treatment, and by expanding and sharing knowledge, to advance treatment of children with catastrophic diseases worldwide, while developing strategies to prevent catastrophic diseases in children.
All money taken in from the charity auction will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
On site charity auction item donations can be made before noon on Saturday at Dealer Ops. We also welcome toy and stuffed animal donations, for long-term inpatients.
Since 2013, our charity auctions and other events have brought in over $40,000. All thanks to you.
But wait, there’s more! We are also proud to support our community guest Foal Papers in his campaign to raise £1,000 or more for Macmillan Cancer Support by October 21. (That’s approximately $1,275 in American money.) If he succeeds, he’ll have his head shaved at our convention. We have to make this happen. Donate to Foaly’s campaign and make sure that it does!
