The much-anticipated St. Jude Evening Under the Stars Party is fast approaching. So, to get people excited, Karen and Mark Carney hosted a small, intimate event to thank those who are making this big-deal fundraiser possible.
Event co-chairs Marian Haggar Bryan and Lydia Haggar Novakov shared a few remarks with supporters as they enjoyed cocktails, passed hors d'oeuvre and music from the Mike Drake Group. But the real treat came when Dr. Tanja Gruber spoke about the Pediatric Children’s Genome Project (PCGP) she is leading at St. Jude.
She explained to attendees — including Laura Flores, Regina Bruce, Perry Smith, John Strauss, Lynn McBee, Pennie and Alan Marshall, Marian Bryan, Jerry Crawford, and Margo Keyes — what generous support from event sponsors does to help the hospital and its important research.
The St. Jude Evening Under the Stars Party, set for October 26 at Omni Dallas, supports St. Jude Children's Research Hospital 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 can be purchased online.
