Legends for Charity
 

Thank you for attending the Legends for Charity® dinner. The event was created in 2005 by Cheryl DeLeonardis, President of Ocean 2 Ocean Productions.

During each year's dinner, the Pat Summerall Award is presented to someone who has made a significant contribution in the sports field. This year's award winner was Tony Dungy, NFL Hall of Famer, historic winning coach of Super Bowl XLI® and current analyst on NBC’s Football Night in America.

We extend special thanks to our sponsors and volunteers for making this event a success. Your generosity means no St. Jude family ever pays for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. 

There's still time to make a donation.
