Friends of St. Jude, a group of young professionals dedicated to the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and networking for a cause.

Friends of St. Jude Spring Gala

Thank you for attending the second annual Friends of St. Jude Spring Gala, benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Guests enjoyed an evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dancing, silent auction and more to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Fundraise after the event

This year, we have set a goal to raise $20,000 through committee fundraising pages outside the event. Together, we can achieve this milestone and make a significant difference in the life of a child with cancer.

With your support

St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.

  1. One pair of crutches

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

    1 pair of crutches
  2. One red blood cell transfusion

    Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions. Your gift 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.

    1 hour of physical therapy
  4. Two days of oxygen

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

  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. At Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, parents can obtain these essentials free of charge.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
