St. Jude partner Kay® Jewelers hosted its annual festival for St. Jude patients in March. The theme was "wild west rodeo" and patients enjoyed lasso and riding games, face paintings, karaoke and an opportunity to see an original old west stagecoach.

The festival is part of Kay Jewelers annual incentive trip for its employees who have made a strong commitment to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude. About 50 Kay employees participated.

Kay Jewelers has been a partner with St. Jude since 1999 and was one of the first companies to join the St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign.

Most recently, Kay has committed to providing $20 million as lead sponsor of the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital - Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project.
