Thank you for joining us for the 18th annual St. Jude Night of Hope, Noche de Esperanza, Gala in Dallas, Texas. We kicked off Hispanic Heritage Month by celebrating the many ways the Hispanic community is supporting the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This impactful evening featured inspirational stories from St. Jude patients and supporters, a seated dinner, dancing, a unique auction and more!

All proceeds from this event benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.

For more information on becoming a sponsor at next year's event, contact Tabatha Gonzalez-Olaechea at

Every child deserves a chance to live their best life and celebrate every moment. When you support St. Jude, you can help make cures possible for kids with cancer. Together, we can save more lives.

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

  2. One hour of physical therapy

  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

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

One in five children diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. won’t survive. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. With your support, we’ll be one step closer to that day. One cure closer. One child closer. Let’s cure childhood cancer. Together.
