Thank you for attending the 15th Annual St. Jude Taste of Oxford, a regional culinary experience and charity gala in Oxford, Mississippi to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
This highly anticipated community event welcomed St. Jude supporters from the Mississippi Delta, Northeast Mississippi and the Memphis area. We enjoyed the beauty of The Jefferson Oxford and the featured cuisines from local Oxford restaurants.
To date, this event has raised $680,815! All proceeds from this event benefit St. Jude, where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.
Treatments developed at St. Jude have helped raise the survival rate for children with cancer in the United States, where 4 out of 5 children survive cancer.
In many countries, however, only 1 out of 5 children diagnosed with cancer will survive. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer, no matter where they live.
Contact us directly to get involved and find ways to connect. You can also like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram to stay up-to-date about the exciting events in northern Mississippi and the Mid-South.

One red blood cell transfusion
Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions.
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.
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.
