St. Jude Gold Luncheon

Make a Donation


A Memphis event

Thank you for attending the fifth annual St. Jude Gold Luncheon, presented by First Tennessee Foundation. In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, guests enjoyed a catered lunch and a panel presentation celebrating the Memphis Bicentennial emceed by Kontji Anthony. The 2019 St. Jude Gold Luncheon Women of Distinction were also recognized.

All proceeds from this exclusive event will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.


The St. Jude Gold Luncheon Women of Distinction

Join an exclusive group of women committed to supporting the fight against childhood cancer. These women are role models and leaders in their community and give back in their own way – through work, family or philanthropy. These leaders raise funds and awareness for St. Jude in fulfillment of Danny Thomas’s wish that "no child should die in the dawn of life."

You can still support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude

Every gift you give makes a real impact in the lives of St. Jude kids and their families.

  1. One pair of crutches

    Crutches sized especially for children help them maneuver during treatment. Raising just $100 can help St. Jude provide the tools necessary for our young patients to stay mobile.

  2. One red blood cell transfusion

    Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions. The funds you raise can help St. Jude provide the best care and treatment for patients.

    1 red blood transfusion
  3. One hour of physical therapy

    Physical therapy helps ensure every child treated here enjoys the highest quality of life possible.

  4. Two days of oxygen

    During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing. Raising $750 can help cover the cost of two days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient.

  5. Patient family necessities for 20

    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. Your fundraising goal of $1,000 can ensure that parents at Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, can obtain these essentials free of charge.
