Manheim Nashville donated $110,000 to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital yesterday in memory of a very special little girl. Although she passed away after a battle with a rare form of brain cancer two years ago, Mary Jo Dietsch, the daughter of Manheim employee Dan Dietsch, continues to touch lives.

The funds were raised through the ninth annual Mary Jos Cure 4 Kids Golf Classic. Before she passed, Dietsch was heavily involved in the tournament to raise money for the worthy cause.

Manheim Assistant Controller David Pierce said that next years tournament, which has been set for Sept. 23, 2013, needs to raise $130,000 to meet their one million dollar goal. We hope to reach a million in our tenth year, he said, adding that those funds will continue to benefit St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital.

The tournament was made possible thanks to key sponsors, Essen Motors, Wholesale, Inc. and Dex Imaging.
