BSN® to Host Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Global leader in sports nutrition plans to raise more than $107,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to surpass last year’s fundraising efforts
Dec. 1, 2010 - PRLog -- Boca Raton, Fla. - This Friday, Bio-Engineered Supplements & Nutrition, Inc. or BSN® (, will host its 2nd Annual Employee Appreciation Day and Charity Fundraiser at Lakeside Terrace Reception Center, located at 7880 Glades Rd., Boca Raton, Fla. 33434, from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Open to BSN® staff only, all proceeds from the day’s casino-style entertainment will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to fund the progression of research and treatment of childhood cancer. This makes the second year BSN® is supporting St. Jude with its Vegas-themed Employee Appreciation Day, raising more than $107,000 for the organization in 2009. The event will be complete with dealers running the games and an employee raffle giving away tons of prizes donated by BSN® and its vendor partners.

“BSN® has always been a company concerned with giving back to the community on both the local and national levels and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has long been an organization near and dear to our hearts,” James Tracy, director of marketing at BSN, continues. “We’re proud to support such a worthy cause and look forward to this year’s event as we plan to exceed last year’s substantial donations by a wide margin.”

With even more vendors taking part this year and pledging generous donations and prizes, this event is poised to be even bigger and better than ever before. Contributing partners this year include the UFC® and its affiliates, UFC® magazine, Men’s Health, Maxim, Weider Publications, Lions Gate Entertainment, THQ Games, Carmi Flavors, and many, many more.

St. Jude has been a leader in the advancement of research and treatment of childhood cancer and other catastrophic illnesses for nearly 50 years, playing a major role in significantly reducing childhood cancer mortality rates during that time. Representatives from St. Jude will be on hand for the event, which will include a ceremonial presentation of the grand total once all the donations have been tallied.

“St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is extremely appreciative of BSN®’s generous donation to the hospital last year and truly grateful that we have been chosen once again as their charity of choice,” Wanda Brill, associate director of St. Jude’s Miami Office, states. “St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened to 80 percent today.  Thanks to public contributions like BSN®’s, we are able to continue conducting basic and clinical research and treatment into catastrophic childhood diseases, mainly cancer.”

BSN®’s 2nd Annual Employee Appreciation Day and Charity Fundraiser will be an exciting day of fun and relaxation for the BSN® family, providing the company with the chance to come together while having a truly positive effect on the lives of others. BSN® and its vendor partners value this opportunity to show their support for such a tremendously worthy cause and contribute to the work they do in some small way.
