A Sarasota event

Thank you for joining us for the fourth annual St. Jude Presents: Foodlosophy, a Sarasota Culinary Experience. Guests enjoyed a creative, delicious and nutritious meal designed and prepared by some of Sarasota’s best chefs and local farms. This unforgettable evening at Michael's on East also included a St. Jude patient presentation, cocktails, dinner and a live and silent auction. All proceeds from this event will support the mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children.®


You can still support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude

Every gift you give makes a real impact in the lives of St. Jude kids and their families.

  1. One pair of crutches

    Crutches sized especially for children help them maneuver during treatment. Raising just $100 can help St. Jude provide the tools necessary for our young patients to stay mobile.

  2. One red blood cell transfusion

    Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions. The funds you raise can help St. Jude provide the best care and treatment for patients.

    1 red blood transfusion
  3. One hour of physical therapy

    Physical therapy helps ensure every child treated here enjoys the highest quality of life possible.

  4. Two days of oxygen

    During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing. Raising $750 can help cover the cost of two days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient.

    Patient family necessities for 20
  5. Patient family necessities for 20

    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. Your fundraising goal of $1,000 can ensure that parents at Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, can obtain these essentials free of charge.
