The Mission of St. Jude

Share This Post

You’ve heard of St. Jude – but do you truly know the mission?
For the third time, I was honored to serve as the emcee for the St. Jude Evening in the Desert Gala to raise critical funds – and support – for St. Jude – because no child should die in the dawn of life.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
Congratulations to my friend Leeann Verret, who did an amazing job chairing the beautiful event set against the lovely backdrop of Grayhawk Golf Club.
I was able to introduce my sweet friend Pat Bondurant – the 2019 St. Jude Heart and Hope recipient – who honored this year’s recipient, Jamie Korn.
Thank you to Jamie, who spoke so passionately about how St. Jude saved the life of her daughter Bridget, who also graced us with her courageous spirit last night.
The always amazing Letitia Frye  presented a rousing live auction, followed by a fun live performance by the Steve Bogard and JT Harding,  two songwriters from Nashville behind many #1 hits from artists like Uncle Kracker, Darius Rucker, George Strait, and Blake Shelton.
Big love to my hubby, who not only made the most handsome date – but also bid big last night to help in the effort to defeat childhood cancer.
Thank you St. Jude, for all you do – and for having me. Please support their efforts to give families hope, when they need it the most.
