#RefsRaiseIt May 2017: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
On April 13th, Red Carpet Refs launched Red Carpet Refs Raise It, a brand new charity fundraising campaign in honor and memory of our friend, Cody Clark. #RefsRaiseIt is an ongoing effort that strives to raise direct donations to accredited charities. Zero donations go to or through Red Carpet Refs.
We encourage our followers to donate directly to a charity and submit their receipts to us (via Twitter or Facebook). Upon receiving proof of donation, we enter the donors for a chance to win monthly themed prizes (supplied by Red Carpet Refs and our sponsors). This month’s theme is Disney and Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
At St. Jude, no family ever pays for treatments, travel, housing, or food — because all families should worry about is helping their child live. With the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer. Discoveries at St. Jude help kids across America, and St. Jude freely shares their research around the world to help save lives everywhere.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is funded almost entirely by people like you. And because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most — saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
Be a Guardian of your galaxy and donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital today. Make a donation through the official St. Jude website (online donations must be a minimum of $5), submit your receipt to Red Carpet Refs, and you’ll be automatically entered to win special Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 prizes. #RefsRaiseIt is not endorsed by nor affiliated with The Walt Disney Company, Marvel Studios, or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Picking up where Guardians of the Galaxy—2014’s highest grossing film of the summer—left off, Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the action-packed, irreverent, epic space adventures of Peter Quill aka Star-Lord and his gang of eccentric characters as they patrol and protect the universe, doing mercenary work in the wake of the popularity and fame they garnered from saving Xandar.
Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the story follows the team as they fight to keep their newfound family together while traversing the outer reaches of the cosmos to unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.
Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and Kurt Russell. The film opens in 3D and IMAX May 5th.
