17th Annual FedEx/St. Jude Angels & Stars Gala

17th Annual FedEx/St. Jude Angels & Stars GalaSaturday, May 18, 7pm – InterContinental Hotel, 100 Chopin Plaza, Miami

The 17th annual FedEx/St. Jude Angels and Stars Gala benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® celebrated a magical night of artistic expression, fine dining and Latin music, hosted by TV personality Pamela Silva Conde. 

María Celeste Arrarás, a Puerto Rican award-winning broadcast journalist, author, and television personality who was named by Newsweek magazine as one of the “20 Most Powerful Women,” was recognized for her commitment to the patients and families of St. Jude. In addition to Arrarás, Miami-based philanthropist, mother and influencer Tracy Wilson Mourning was also recognized for her outstanding citizenship to the community.

Approximately 600 guests joined for an evening celebration that included a St. Jude family speaker, live and silent auctions, and a special performance by GRAMMY Award-winning artist Luis Enrique. The annual event raises funds to help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
