Thank you for attending the third annual St. Jude Give to Live Gala in Greenwich, Connecticut benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Guests enjoyed a memorable cocktail hour, exquisite dinner, drinks, live entertainment, auctions and special St. Jude moments alongside fellow supporters to help further advance the mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children.®
All proceeds from this event benefit St. Jude, where families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.

Marilena Greig has dedicated over 25 years to helping the kids of St. Jude. In 2019, when she saw the opportunity to introduce this lifesaving mission to hundreds of new supporters in the Northern Westchester and Fairield County communities, she took on the challenge and created an inspiring and annual gala event: the St. Jude Give To Live Gala. Despite the impact of the pandemic, the Give to Live Gala has raised approximately $1 million for the St. Jude mission.
As the founder of the Give To Live Gala, Marilena continues to cultivate and bring new memebers to the planning committee year after year.
