Memphis-based Cleo, Inc., one of the world's largest holiday gift wrap manufacturers, presented St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with a check for $227,794 on Jan. 6, representing money raised during the company's annual holiday gift wrap promotion.

Under the program developed by Cleo, wrapping paper featuring artwork inspired by the patients and families at St. Jude is sold in stores across the country. Twenty-five percent of the wholesale price comes back to St. Jude. This year's donation brought Cleo's three-year total for St. Jude to more than $500,000.
 
Last fall, St. Jude presented Cleo with its Corporate Partner of the Year Award for its continued commitment to the children of St. Jude.
