Unsure of his life’s direction, a young Danny Thomas sought guidance from St. Jude Thaddeus,
the patron saint of hopeless causes.If the saint would point to the path he should take,
Danny vowed to build a shrine in his name.
“Show me the way in life and I will build you a shrine.”
– Danny Thomas’ prayer to St. Jude Thaddeus
Founded in 1962 by late entertainer Danny Thomas, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, is the largest center in the United States for the treatment and research of pediatric cancer and other life-threatening childhood diseases. The unique hospital, which shares its treatment procedures upon request with other hospitals for free, has increased the childhood cancer survival rate from 20 to 70 percent overall. Consistent with the vision of its founder, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or the family’s ability to pay.
Many kids will never be able to enjoy the multitude of experiences that we take for granted every day. Many may never be healthy enough to ever leave their hospital room for any reason at all. These are the kids to which we wish to dedicate this Las Vegas Concours d’Elegance, a different kind of vehicle that can raise life-changing funds to help the children of the St, Jude Children’s Research Hospital, through the generosity of our car-loving friends.
This is our time. It’s time for Las Vegas to show the world that it has heart, soul, and the generosity to hold an event so special, so unique, and so focused. This is Las Vegas, and we love and support you, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
