Friends of St. Jude (FOSJ) Miami, the young professionals group dedicated to raising awareness and funding for St. Jude Children’s Research HospitalÂ®,Â hostedÂ the 9th Annual International Dermatology “It’s All About the Kids”, aÂ Havana Retro themed signature event, presented by the AndrÃ©s Asion Foundation at the JW Marriott Marquis in downtown Miami.
This yearÂ “It’s All About the Kids” isÂ recognizing the Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of iHeartLatino, community activist and philanthropist, Enrique Santos with the “St. Jude Stephan Gutierrez Award.” His dedication to the mission of St. Jude has been exemplary and worthy of recognition.
“I support St. Jude because I have seen firsthand the lifesaving work and research that takes place. Work and research that would be impossible without support and donations,” said Enrique Santos. “All kids deserve a chance in life and cancer has impeded that for way too many. By supporting St. Jude we support life.”
This year’s hosts include award-winning journalist and anchor of Univision Network’s news-magazine show Primer Impacto Pamela Silva Conde and WPLG Local 10’s, Victor Oquendo.Â The evening featured a tasting menu and signature cocktail, “YOLO-Make a Difference,” which was inspired by Andres Asion, as well as entertainment by DJ Pete Diaz accompanied by the fun beats of the Bongos.Â #FriendsOfStJudeMiami #StJudeMiamiGala #StJude
