Thank you for attending the Colorado Unites for St. Jude Gala, hosted at the Denver Art Museum on Saturday, June 10, 2023.
This year's theme was deeply rooted in the arts, which are a very important part of a St. Jude patient's journey. Expression through art, be it painting, music or even the culinary arts, helps treat the whole patient, not just the disease or life-threatening illness with which they've been diagnosed. Effective creative outlets like these can help patients express their creativity, build coping skills, support physical rehabilitation and more.
Colorado Unites for St. Jude was an evening of hope and inspiration, and it showcased the art of many of our patients in various forms. All proceeds from this event help to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.

Thank you to our featured artists
Five local artists’ works were featured at the gala. The sculptures you saw at the event were inspired by some of the patient art that was also on display.

More stories on St. Jude and the arts:
Finding cures. Saving children.® Everywhere.
St. Jude cares for some of the world’s sickest children regardless of their race, ethnicity, beliefs, or ability to pay. Our patients receive the customized care they need to treat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, no matter what barriers they may face.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped raise the survival rate for children with cancer in the United States, where more than 4 out of 5 children survive cancer. In many developing countries, however, fewer than 1 out of 5 children diagnosed with cancer will survive. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer, no matter where they live.
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.
