More than 8,000 other retail locations joining national partners in effort to raise $5 million

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --National partners from the 17th annual Halloween Promotion benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital(R) were in Memphis today to celebrate raising more than $2.4 million to help the hospital in its fight against childhood cancer.

Companies represented at today's recognition ceremony included Buffalo Wild Wings, Casey's General Stores, Fox & Hound Restaurant Group and Champps Entertainment, Inc., Hess, and TravelCenters of America. These partners accounted for more than 4,000 retail locations nationwide that participated in the Halloween Promotion; collectively they generated nearly half of the Halloween Promotion's 2008 fundraising goal of $5 million.

"MillerCoors is proud to support this fundraiser and partner with St. Jude in saving children's lives," said Bryce McTavish, vice president of retail marketing at MillerCoors.
