National Beverage St. Nick’s Program – Converts ‘Hope’ to ‘Cures’ for the Kids of St. Jude

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–National Beverage Corp. (NASDAQ:FIZZ), a continuing partner of St. Jude
Children’s Research Hospital® for 23 years, invites all to
join its mission to help the children of St. Jude through donations that
ultimately convert ‘Hope’ to ‘Cures’.


Since it opened its doors in 1962, St. Jude has significantly improved
the lives of children around the world through its pioneering research
and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
No child is denied treatment by St. Jude based on a family’s ability to
pay.

“St. Jude, one of the original twelve Apostles, is the Patron Saint of Hopeless
Causes,”
stated Nick A. Caporella, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer. “I don’t think anyone can embrace the message of Hopeless
Cause
s more fervently than a parent who accompanies their child to
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It is up to each of us to give
parents and their precious children . . . HOPE – hope that the
very next treatment is . . . the CURE. Join us in honoring St.
Jude as the Beacon of Hope to all children who have been stricken
with life-threatening illnesses,” petitioned Caporella.

National Beverage developed St. Nick’s holiday drinks more than two
decades ago with the mission of promoting the trailblazing research and
exceptional care of St. Jude. The unique St. Jude ‘Thanks and Giving’
logo is prominently displayed on St. Nick’s holiday drinks.

To further aid St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in its lifesaving
mission and to promote donations, National Beverage has placed a
full-page ad in USA Today for 23 consecutive years, beckoning all
who read this ad to contribute their generosity to the miraculous work
of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. In addition to purchasing St.
Nick’s drinks, consumers are encouraged to make donations online at www.stnicks4stjude.com
or by calling 1-800-4STJUDE.

National Beverage’s iconic brands are the genuine essence . . . of
America.
