In 1957, 100 representatives of the Arab-American community met in Chicago to form ALSAC with the sole purpose of raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The spirit of that 1957 meeting is the inspiration behind our virtual campaign — Four Stars of Chicago: Uniting for St. Jude.
Over the last 26 years, Four Stars has been the premier St. Jude event in Chicago, bringing people from all over the Chicagoland area together to unite for St. Jude. Today, our founder Danny Thomas’ vision is more important than ever. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
