Join us for St. Jude Spirit of the Dream in honor of Black History Month. This event, held in partnership with the National Pan-Hellenic Council Memphis Metropolitan Area, benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This event will feature cocktails, art, a live performance from African-American artists, dancing and hors d’oeuvres.

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.
