On Thursday, May 9, 2019, the Kids for Kids Foundation arrived on the campus of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, for the unveiling of the Kids for Kids Family Room located within the Tri Delta Place short-term housing facility. Robert Catalano, Founder and Board Chair, joined by fellow Founders, Committee Members, Junior Committee Members, and long time donors, celebrated this milestone after a decade of raising over $10 million for St. Jude.
Kids for Kids Committee Members and supporters look forward to the opportunity to visit the St. Jude Campus for moments like those pictured below. To bring a smile to the face of a child facing the challenge of battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases is an awakening experience.
The success of Kids for Kids and the naming opportunity of the Kids for Kids Family Room at St. Jude would not have been possible without the endless support of our donors and dedicated Committee Members. Thank you to all who have supported Kids for Kids throughout the past decade! We look forward to the years ahead, making more strides to support children and families struggling with medical challenges, so that together we can make a difference in the lives of others.
