The New York’s leading young philanthropists have joined together at the Fifth Annual Gold Gala, An Evening for St. Jude, to celebrate and honor the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on February 27.


While the black-tie event was full of dancing, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, the attendee’s main goal was to raise awareness and funds for St. Jude’s groundbreaking and world-leading research. The event Co-founder and Chair, Christina Strong, and Event Chair, Elise Runde Voss, strongly believe that St. Jude’s innovative treatments will not only help to defeat childhood cancer and other deadly diseases, but that the hospital’s top scientist can find cancer prevention treatments as well.


Among the notable attendees were Alexandra Buchan, Alexandra Burchfield, Martha Civitillo, Kevin Davenport, Lilli Donahue, Meghan Garman, Julia Gordon, Natalie Sawyer, Caitlin Clark, Kyle Gordon, Kevin Izzo, Samantha Moran, Rick Pierce and Tanner Smith.
