WHAT: 

Join St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® supporters and friends for the 15th annual FedEx/St. Jude Angels and Stars Gala in downtown Miami at the Intercontinental hotel on Saturday, May 20. This celebration of old Hollywood glamour will bring together philanthropists, influencers and celebrity friends from the South Florida community to honor the true stars —the children and families of St. Jude.
