"We started The Eric Trump Foundation with one goal in mind and that was to raise a tremendous amount of money for kids who are suffering the worst terminal illnesses," says Eric Trump, Founder of The Eric Trump Foundation. "Donating and pledging nearly $28 million to St. Jude, we've grown into one of the largest private charities in the country. We chose St. Jude because they're truly the best at what they do. They have the best doctors, the best researchers and the best state-of-the-art-resources, including the only proton radiation therapy (PRT) center dedicated solely to children. Best of all, St. Jude freely shares their groundbreaking cancer research with other doctors and scientists worldwide. We are extremely humbled by HudsonMOD's recent pledge of $1 million to The Eric Trump Foundation. We could not be happier with their level of dedication and sincere support of our mission. Because of events like this, no family will ever receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food."
"It's been extremely rewarding to see such a tremendous amount of support from local and national luxury brands throughout New York and New Jersey in honor of this special cause," says Shannon Steitz, President of HudsonMOD. "This coveted event will exceed all expectations, resulting in substantial proceeds for The Eric Trump Foundation in support of the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital."
