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.
Red wagons frequently give our patients a ride through the hospital.

Your donation will be used to provide breakthrough research, treatment and cures. Items listed here are representative of services and supplies that are part of the treatment and care of children at St. Jude. The cost of each item or service is an approximation and will vary based on actual costs incurred and individual patient needs.

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.
All proceeds from this event will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
