Thank you for joining us at the 21st annual FedEx-St. Jude Angels & Stars Gala, chaired by Claudia Rostagno, FedEx in Miami, Florida on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
We came together for an unforgettable evening among the soothing sights and sounds of the Garden of Hope to help advance the mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children.®
The event included a cocktail hour, seated dinner, silent auction, St. Jude patient speaker, Give to Live, live entertainment and more.

When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered largely incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

When Ava was unsteady on her feet and having headaches, her parents expected a brain scan would rule out anything serious. Instead, they were in for a shock.
Ava, at age 5, was diagonsed with medulloblastoma, a type of brain tumor.
But Ava is a fighter. And she wasn't backing down.
St. Jude stories from Florida
One red wagon
Wagons are the preferred mode of travel through the halls of the hospital and around campus for our younger patients.
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.
