June – September 2021
A virtual giving campaign


St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons was founded in 2015 by Dave and Sue Birdsall. Their grandson, Drew, was just 2 years old when he was found to have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer.


Drew was treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and underwent three-and-a-half years of chemotherapy treatments. As a way to give back to the hospital that saved their grandson’s life, their family created St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons to bring the Watermill and East Hamptons communities together to raise money and awareness for St. Jude. Since its inception, more than $2 million has been raised.

Dedicate a brick

For gifts of $5,000 or more, we will honor your contribution to St. Jude with a dedicated brick in the Pathway to Hope, the sidewalk leading to the new Advanced Research Center on the St. Jude campus.

Bricks are a source of inspiration at St. Jude. Patients, families and staff will see your words of support with every step that they take on this pathway.

Together, we can help find cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
