Thank you for attending the 18th annual St. Jude Fall Festival of Hope, where local restaurants shared their finest cuisine in celebration of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. 

Guests enjoyed cocktails and delectable samples served by executive chefs from top Twin Cities restaurants such as The Capital Grille, Salut Bar Américain, Fogo de Chão, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, SEVEN Steakhouse and Sakana Sushi. 

The evening’s highlights included inspiration from a St. Jude patient speaker and an exciting live auction. All proceeds from this exclusive culinary event will further the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®
