Join us on February 22, 2024 for the 16th 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 welcomes St. Jude supporters from the Mississippi Delta, Northeast Mississippi and the Memphis area. We will come together to enjoy the beauty of The Jefferson Oxford and the featured cuisines from local Oxford restaurants.

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 who develop cancer will survive. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer, no matter where they live.

Every dollar makes a difference*

  1. One red blood cell transfusion

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

    Donate $250

  2. 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.

    Donate $500

  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

  4. 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

  5. Daily room rate of the ICU

    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.

    Donate $5,000
