Stop & Shop’s Triple Winner® Game continues its mission to help support pediatric cancer research

Stop & Shop has raised over $14 million for Memorial Sloan Kettering since 2001

Purchase, NY (April 9, 2015) – Beginning April 10, Stop & Shop customers will have the opportunity to help support pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center through Stop & Shop’s annual Triple Winner® Game. Customers in New York, New Jersey and southern Connecticut who give a $1 contribution* to Memorial Sloan Kettering will receive a Triple Winner scratch ticket good for a free product or product coupon, or cash up to $10,000.

Since 2001, Stop & Shop has raised over $68 million through the Triple Winner Game with more than $14 million given to support MSK’s pediatric cancer research program. This year, the company goal is to raise another $1.5 million to support the efforts of pediatric cancer researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering who are working tirelessly to improve the lives of children with cancer.

“Triple Winner has given families hope that their youngsters will receive the care needed so that they can lead long and productive lives. We are so appreciative of the generosity of each of our customers who help to make this campaign a success. By working together we are proud that Stop & Shop and our customers can make a difference,” said Don Sussman, president of Stop & Shop Divisions.

“The support Stop & Shop has provided us for the past fourteen years has allowed us to continue to fulfill our mission. We hope to not only cure childhood cancer, but to send our patients back to their homes, schools, families and friends in exactly the condition they were in before this devastating diagnosis,” says Paul A. Meyers, MD, Vice Chair of MSK Department of Pediatrics. “The hard work each Stop & Shop employee puts into this campaign truly pays off. We see better outcomes for kids and for their families. On behalf of the physicians and scientists who work tirelessly to conquer childhood cancers – and the children who will benefit now and in the future – I extend our deepest gratitude.”
