Hope in the Hamptons hosts

Sue Birdsall, along with her family, speaks at the 2017 Hope in the Hamptons event. Sue, and her husband, Dave, have hosted the event on their property for the past three years.

The third annual St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons fundraiser passed the $1 million mark for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at its July 15 event in Water Mill, N.Y.  

Dave and Sue Birdsall began the event after their grandson was treated at St. Jude. This year’s event brought together more than 500 guests who enjoyed dinner and live and silent auctions, while CNN anchor Don Lemon served as emcee of the event. The event has now raised $1.3 million for St. Jude.

Due to in part to  the generous donors at the  St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
