Thank you for joining us for St. Jude Invest in Hope Los Angeles on Thursday, September 14, 2023 in Los Angeles, California. We gathered to celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children.®
St. Jude Invest in Hope Los Angeles has raised more than $3 million for the children and families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital since its inception in 2016. We celebrated our eighth anniversary with an immersive and inspirational St. Jude experience and an exclusive outdoor cocktail reception with L.A.'s most influential business leaders atop The Maybourne Hotel.
All proceeds from this event benefit patients and patient families at St. Jude. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.

For information on becoming a sponsor at next year's event, please contact Cameryn Kaylor at

St. Jude provides comprehensive care and health equality for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. We tailor treatment for each child's unique needs, improving outcomes for some of the world’s sickest children.
