 6 – 10 p.m.

Join us for Invest in Hope LA on Thursday, September 14, 2023 as we gather to celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Celebrating its eighth anniversary, 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. The evening will feature an immersive and inspirational St. Jude experience and the opportunity to network with LA's most influential business leaders at an exclusive outdoor cocktail reception 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.

Every dollar makes a difference*

Make a donation today to help St. Jude kids and their families.*

  1. One red blood cell transfusion

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

    Donate $250

  2. One hour of physical therapy

    Physical therapy is provided to patients because children with life-threatening diseases like cancer may develop developmental, cognitive or physical impairments as a result of their illnesses and their treatments.

    Donate $500

  3. Parent necessities for 20 patient families

    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.

    Donate $1,000

  4. An ultrasound study for a St. Jude patient

    An ultrasound study is among the diagnostic imaging tests that doctors use to diagnose and monitor disease and treatment.

    Donate $2,500

  5. Daily room rate of the ICU

    The Intensive Care Unit at St. Jude has twice been recognized with the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence given by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. In 2009, the St. Jude ICU became Tennessee’s first ICU to win the honor.

    Donate $5,000
