SUPPORT ST. JUDE AT THE NINTH ANNUAL MIRACLE ON THE BAYFRONT GALA
Local gala raises funds for international organization that works to fight childhood cancer
SAINT AUGUSTINE, Florida (February 14, 2023) – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. In its ninth year, on Wednesday, April 5th, St. Jude Miracle on the Bayfront Gala will raise funds through ticket sales, silent auction, and donations. Guests will enjoy a pre-event cocktail hour, dinner, live and silent auctions, and live rooftop entertainment and dancing with music by The Life Atlantic.
“We’re so honored to provide support to such an important organization,” reveals Tammy Harrow, co-host of St. Jude Miracle on the Bayfront Gala. “All of the proceeds raised go straight to St. Jude. As a parent myself, being able to offer support to a family going through the unimaginable, to help ease even one worry – it’s why we do it.”
St. Jude Miracle on the Bayfront Gala will be held Wednesday, April 5, 2023, from 6pm until 10pm, at the White Room, 1 King Street, St. Augustine, FL. Attendees can purchase tickets by choosing from different levels of sponsorship. Packages begin at $2,500, include from 8 to 16 tickets, and offer unique ways to recognize your critical support. For smaller parties, individual tickets are a new addition and may be purchased for $200 per person. For those who cannot attend, but would still like to show their support, donations are accepted. To purchase tickets or make a donation, please visit the event website here.
When St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. In many developing countries, however, only 1 out of 5 children diagnosed with cancer will survive. St. Jude cares for children regardless of race, ethnicity, beliefs, or ability to pay. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – so they can focus on helping their child live. St. Jude can provide children with cutting-edge treatments not covered by insurance, at no cost to families through generous donor support.
“When you look at the costs of some of these life-sustaining procedures,” continues Harrow. “$750 for just three days of oxygen, $5,000 for only a day in the Intensive Care Unit – it’s overwhelming. At a time when the family just needs to focus on caring for their child, we can be working in the background, raising the funds to help cover those costs. When you attend the Miracle on the Bayfront Gala, you’re providing that support.”
ABOUT ST.
