Thank you for joining us on February 24, 2024 for the fifth annual Celebration at Sundown charity gala at Tannahill's Tavern & Music Hall in the Fort Worth Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas.

This impactful dinner event brought together the Fort Worth community to celebrate the everyday joys and childhood milestones that many of us take for granted each day while raising funds for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children.®

For information on becoming a sponsor at next year's event, contact Tabatha G. Olaechea at

At St. Jude, we believe that all children should be given the quality care that they deserve. Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from generous donors, we have the freedom to focus on what matters most — saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
