The AutoZone Liberty Bowl and the College Football Playoff Foundation presented a $310,553.63 check to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, highlighting the Bowl’s year-round support of St. Jude. The $310,553.63 is a record donation and brings the collective support by the AutoZone Liberty Bowl and the CFP Foundation to more than $3 million for St. Jude teachers.

The AutoZone Liberty Bowl has partnered with St. Jude Children’s Hospital for many decades. The Bowl features the St. Jude message in its highly rated national telecast on ESPN.

Chris Moore, 2021 President of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl:

“On behalf of all the members and volunteers of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, we are proud to continue our long-time support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with this record donation.”

Steve Ehrhart, Executive Director of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl:

“Danny Thomas, the founder of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, inspired the AutoZone Liberty Bowl to work hand-in-hand with St. Jude in its mission of taking care of the kids.  All of our members and volunteers have worked very hard throughout the year to make this contribution and to showcase St. Jude.”

WCM Investment Management Makes $1 Million Donation to
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

WCM Investment Management, the Presenting Sponsor of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl’s annual golf tournament that benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, has made a special $1 million dollar donation to St. Jude.

Chris Moore, a long-time marketing executive with WCM Investment Management and co-chairman of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl’s annual golf tournament the past 28 years, connected WCM Investment Management to the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in 2014. Since then, WCM Investment Management has been the tournament’s Presenting Sponsor. This year, Moore is serving as President of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Those connections and relationships, combined with WCM Investment Management’s dedicated support of the life-saving work at St. Jude led the investment firm to make this significant donation to St. Jude.

WCM Investment Management’s generous $1 million donation is in addition to the AutoZone Liberty Bowl’s record donation of more than $310,500 to St. Jude that was also announced today.

WCM’s support helps fuel the St. Jude $11.5 billion, six-year strategic plan, which includes tripling its global investment to impact more than 400,000 kids with cancer around the world each year.

Chris Moore, 2021 President of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl:

"I am humbled by WCM Investment Management’s $1 million donation to St. Jude and it makes me incredibly proud to be associated with WCM Investment Management, the AutoZone Liberty Bowl and St. Jude. All are tremendous organizations that are making an important and positive impact on the lives of the kids at St. Jude.”

In 2021, the AutoZone Liberty Bowl will again support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This is a partnership that brings together a college football tradition and an internationally recognized biomedical research center dedicated to finding cures for catastrophic diseases in children.

The AutoZone Liberty Bowl Football Classic will increase awareness of the lifesaving work performed at St. Jude Hospital for cancer-stricken children by providing international exposure.

When founder Danny Thomas opened St. Jude Hospital in 1962, fewer than 5 percent of its patients survived. Today, more than 90 percent live because of the dedicated work of St. Jude's doctors and scientists and the generosity of St. Jude's supporters. St. Jude Hospital freely shares all of its research, findings, and treatments with all other medical institutions. All St. Jude patients are treated regardless of ability to pay. ALSAC, St. Jude's fund-raising arm, covers all patient costs beyond those reimbursed by third-party insurance.

Each year, players and coaches from both teams visit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to help spread holiday cheer and give encouragement to St. Jude patients.
