Friends of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital recently gathered at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science for a night of good food, good wine and good times. The occasion? To kick off the 2013 St. Jude Evening Under the Stars Party and Golf Classic taking place October 26 and 28 at Omni Dallas.

As charitable guests enjoyed a decadent dinner prepared by Wolfgang Puck Catering, Lydia Novakov and Marian Bryan — co-chairs of the fall fundraising gala — announced this year's honorees: longtime St. Jude supporters Carole and Scott Murray. The party continued as attendees mingled in the T. Boone Pickens Life Then and Now Hall, Expanding Universe Hall and Rose Hall of Birds. 

Seen on the summer scene: Rose Bryan, Linda and Les Secrest, Hamilton Sneed, Carol and Doug Bruton, Cindy and Charlie Feld, Rudy Sharp, Simone Taylor, Amanda Blackman, Susan Amassyali, Andre Vorster, Regina Bruce, John Pickett, and Julie and Chris Halverson

Evening Under the Stars supports St. Jude in its mission to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. Tickets for the fall fundraiser are available online.
