Be part of the largest St. Jude event in Norfolk, Virginia: The Decker St. Jude 50th Anniversary Gala. Join us as we travel 50 years back in time to a Copacabana Supper Club featuring Rat Pack music, dancing and fond memories.

By attending, you‘ll not only be supporting children suffering from catastrophic and life-threatening diseases, but will also help celebrate the life of Peter George Decker, Jr., a former board member and staunch St. Jude supporter. Affectionately known as “Uncle Pete,” Decker passed away February 3, at 76 after a battle with cancer.

The Decker St. Jude 50th Anniversary Gala is organized by a commitee that  worked alongside Pete Decker to support various programs, including gene therapy, bone marrow transplants, immunology and AIDS vaccine research.
