Now through Aug. 3, bidding is open for an online auction affiliated with the St. Jude JAM presented by Delta Dental of Tennessee and HH Global. The annual event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® kicks off a week of fundraising and awareness for St. Jude as fans and supporters gather in Memphis for the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. It will feature performances by Gin Blossoms, Al Paris, formerly with Kool & The Gang, Sara Evans and house band Sixwire at 5:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday, Aug. 3, at Radians Amphitheater at Memphis Botanic Garden.
Exclusive online items include a Les Paul 699 guitar autographed by Alice Cooper, a style consultation with Hollywood celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart, a wine trip to DAOU Vineyards in Paso Robles, California, and more. Winning bidders will not only receive one of a kind products and experiences, but also will make a difference through their support of the St. Jude mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
“The St. Jude JAM is the perfect tee off to celebrate the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, an event that puts St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on a global stage,” said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Our generous donors and partners are the reason St. Jude is able to continue its lifesaving work. We are excited to come together, support the families at St. Jude and celebrate with a purpose.”
Up for bid this year in the live auction is a custom replica 1965 Shelby Cobra, one of the most coveted items because it is built by a team of FedEx pilots. Factory Five Racing and the pilots donated their time to complete this project. These annual custom builds have collectively raised more than $575,000 over the past six years.

Since its inception in 2013, the St. Jude JAM has helped bring awareness to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by helping families everywhere. Thanks to generous donors, 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.
