Thank you for attending the inaugural St. Jude Anchor of Hope benefit on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at The Mariners' Museum and Park in Newport News, Virginia. The evening included hors d’oeuvres, carving stations, live and silent auctions, live music by The Deloreans and a chance to hear from St. Jude patients and their families.
All proceeds from this event benefit St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.
For more information on becoming a sponsor at next year's event, contact Steven Schwamman Hayes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every child deserves a chance to live their best life and celebrate every moment. When you support St. Jude, you can help make cures possible for kids with cancer. Together, we can save more lives.

St. Jude stories from Virginia
One red blood cell transfusion
Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions.
One hour of physical therapy
Physical therapy is provided to patients because children with life-threatening diseases like cancer may develop developmental, cognitive or physical impairments as a result of their illnesses and their treatments.
Parent necessities for 20 patient families
Parents who bring their children to St. Jude often leave home in a hurry and forget to pack day-to-day necessities such as shampoos, razors, deodorant, toothbrushes and lotion. At Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, parents can obtain these essentials free of charge.
An ultrasound study for a St. Jude patient
An ultrasound study is among the diagnostic imaging tests that doctors use to diagnose and monitor disease and treatment.
Daily room rate of the ICU
The Intensive Care Unit at St. Jude has twice been recognized with the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence given by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. In 2009, the St. Jude ICU became Tennessee’s first ICU to win the honor.
