1950s - 1960s


TKE member Danny Thomas

Before Thomas could make his dream of building St. Jude a reality, he garnered the help of many people from all over the world.

Rock 'n' roll legend and fellow Tau Kappa Epsilon member Elvis Presley was one of Danny's early supporters who lent his talents to help raise funds for cancer-stricken children.


1970s - 1980s



More than 30 years ago, Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity joined the fight against childhood cancer when Danny Thomas, fraternity member from the Gamma-Nu chapter at the University of Toledo, asked his fraternity to help him with his cause.

TKE chapters across the country raised money for St. Jude during the 1970s and 1980s.




TKE fundraise for St. Jude

TKE renewed its partnership with St. Jude in 2008, and in 2011 TKE pledged to raise $1 million in five years towards the naming of an MRI suite in the Chili’s Care Center on the St. Jude campus. TKE met this goal a whole year early.




Proton Therapy accelerator at St. Jude

At the beginning of 2016, TKE pledged to raise $2.6 million towards the naming of the proton therapy synchrotron/particle accelerator in the Red Frog Proton Therapy Center. In early 2019, TKE hit this incredible milestone.




TKE fundraises for St. Jude

TKE is taking their support to an all-new level, committing to raise $10 million dollars in 10 years to name the Bone Marrow Transplantation & Cellular Therapy Research Floor.
