Danny Thomas with patient

Thank you for joining us for the Danny Thomas St. Jude Celebrity Golf Invitational, benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Sponsors, donors, participants, friends and celebrity guests gathered for an amazing day of golf, cocktails, dinner, and live and silent auctions at Lakelands Golf and Country Club. By attending, paticipants helped to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®

It took a rabble-rousing, hook-nosed comedian to get your attention, but it took your hearts, loving minds and generous souls to make it (St. Jude Hospital) come true. If I were to die this minute, I would know why I was born.

Danny Thomas, founder
