Xango Donation Helps Causes for Kids

Xango's generous $500,000 donation helped children's cause fundraisers bring in over $800,000 for various children's causes:

RSVP: Scoring touchdowns for kids' causes Operation Kids Award dinner, Ronald McDonald House Charities 'Oriental Odyssey' events raise more than $800,000

Guests at Salt Lake City's Grand America and Little America hotels might have been surprised to see football greats Steve Young and Jerry Rice in tuxedos and Ronald McDonald in his floppy shoes on April 22, but more than 1,300 people who attended Operation Kids Award dinner and the Ronald McDonald House Charities "Oriental Odyssey" took it in stride. The two events spotlighted kids, and between them, they raised more than $800,000 and counting. At Grand America, NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Operation Kids, and former teammate Jerry "Dancing With the Stars" Rice, LeAnn Rimes, Alan Thicke, Steve Mariucci, Ronnie Lott, Billy Gilman and Olympians Johann Koss and Joey Cheek joined 850 guests at the elegant dinner. They were still counting a week later, but a $500,000 gift from Xango and $25,000 from added to the $500-a-seat dinner will make a big difference for OK causes: Christmas Box House, McGruff House Safety Network, Forever Young Foundation, 100% for Kids, The Children's Organ Transplant Association, Best Buddies, Operation Smile and Right to Play. Leading the applause: Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch and Elaine Hatch, coaches LaVell Edwards and Bill Walsh, Xango president Aaron and Tiffany Garrity, Kent and Sarrah Crawford, John Lund, Jerry Moyes, Jack and Diana Towsley, Ali Bowman, Bob and Evelyn Gibson, Stewart and Spring Park, Carolyn Anderson, John Digles, Sherry and Grit Young, Tom and Isabelle Connors, and Ed and Linda Cline.
