More than 400 of Miami’s young philanthropists and celebrities supported the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® during the sixth annual “It’s All About The Kids” signature event at the JW Marriott Marquis. The event raised more than $175,000 for St. Jude, the global leader in the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. The cirque-chic themed benefit was hosted by television personalities Pamela Silva Conde, anchor of Univision Network’s afternoon news-magazine Primer Impacto, and Pedro Andrade from Fusion TV.

During the event, Silvia Trinidad, from International Dermatology Research, Inc., was recognized with the 4th award for her life-long commitment to St. Jude. The award is named after local St. Jude patient Stephan Gutierrez, who was on hand to present it to Mrs. Silvia Trinidad.

International Dermatology (IDR) was recognized as the title sponsor for the sixth consecutive year and Andres Asion Foundation was the presenting sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.

Other sponsors included Pollo Campero, The Gutierrez Family, LAAD, Peter Kellner, Erik Fresen, Academica, The Valls Family, Resorts World Miami, Henry Parra, GreenbergTraurig, Car2Go, Cesar and Pamela Conde, Carlton Fields, American Airlines, Garrido Foundation, Sarria Enterprises, INC., Braman Honda, VELU, Promotional Party Sticks, Midtown Residences, Gymboree, Land South Group, Vestcor Foundation, FPL, AmeriKooler, República, MillerCoors, Cutty Sark, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Univision Radio, and Miami Magazine.

Friends of St. Jude (FOSJ) is a group of young professionals networking for a cause and dedicated to the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the fight against childhood cancer. FOSJ Miami has one of the largest memberships and ranks among the top fundraisers of Friends of St. Jude groups, nationwide. Because of funds raised through events like this, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation. 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.
