I remember in sixth grade, we participated in a math-a-thon fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. I was so passionate about raising money for St. Jude because I remember feeling so thankful that I was healthy, and I wanted to give back. I made it my mission to raise the most money in my entire grade.
I’ve recently learned about an amazing event taking place on May 6th right here in Boston. It is called Toast to St. Jude. The Fifth Annual Toast to St. Jude is an evening featuring a lounge-style reception with hors d’oeuvres, open beer and wine bar, dancing, live entertainment, silent auctions and premier raffle. This event will draw over 400 young professionals in the Boston area to benefit the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. What an amazing way for us young professionals to give back!
They have set a pretty large goal this year, and want to raise over $75,000 which would put their five year total to $200,000. Let’s help them meet that goal! Not only will they be raising money for this amazing cause, but it will be a night to dress up (formal attire recommended!) and see how you can help St. Jude.
Don’t live in Boston but still want to help? Visit this link and you can give donations for different services such as one hour of physical therapy ($500), meals for a week ($250), parent necessities ($57), or even meals for a day ($30). Any little bit will help ease the pain these families are going through during this tough time!
