Join us Monday, May 20, 2024 for the 28th annual St. Jude Open at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Maryland. The St. Jude Open is recognized as one of the premier and longest-running golf tournaments in the Washington, D.C. area.

Twenty-eight years ago, Rick Shadyac and David Black partnered with Steve Buckhantz to start a celebrity golf tournament to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The inaugural April 1995 event that raised $40,000 may seem like yesterday, but this event has flourished over the last two-and-a-half decades and has now raised nearly $5.5 million for the kids of St. Jude.

We continue to dedicate this tournament to the memory of Richard C. Shadyac Sr. For over 40 years, Mr. Shadyac worked tirelessly for the kids of St. Jude. He was an inspiration to all who knew him and helped St. Jude become an internationally recognized institution.

When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered largely incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

Every dollar makes a difference*

  1. One red wagon

    Wagons are the preferred mode of travel through the halls of the hospital and around campus for our younger patients.

    Donate $100

  2. One red blood cell transfusion

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

    Donate $250

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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

    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.
