A New York event

Thank you for joining us at the sixth annual St. Jude Hope and Heritage Gala, benefiting the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Your contributions will help 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.

Watch Our Arabic Heritage.

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.

    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. 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.
