St. Jude’s Gourmet Gala March 1st.

On Tuesday, March 1st, the National Building Museum is host to the 13th annual St. Jude Gourmet Gala: Mardi Gras for the Kids!

By participating, you will not only be supporting children suffering from catastrophic and life–threatening diseases, you will also be among an elite group who support an event that provides an exclusive opportunity to taste some of the D.C. area’s finest restaurant cuisine while mingling with more than 750 business, financial and political leaders.

In addition, many one-of-a-kind auction items are up for bid during our amazing silent auction. The Gourmet Gala is organized by a committee that has helped raise more than $2.5 million for St. Jude throughout the last 12 years and has helped support various programs, including gene therapy, bone marrow transplants, immunology and AIDS vaccine research.

UPDATE: This year’s event raised over $475,000 for the kids of St. Jude. We could not do this without our committee and dedicated supporters like you!
