A Nashville-based event during Black History Month
Thank you for attending Spirit of the Dream, the ultimate party to celebrate the achievements of African Americans who embody the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its founder Danny Thomas. Guests at this inaugural event mingled with leaders and influencers while enjoying handcrafted cocktails, delectable hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment.
St. Jude, in partnership with National PanHellenic Council of Nashville – also presented the Spirit of the Dream Award, honoring an individual who upholds a legacy of hope and generosity in the Nashville community. Your contributions help to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
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.
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.
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.
One hour of physical therapy
Physical therapy helps ensure every child treated here enjoys the highest quality of life possible.
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.
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.
With your support
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
