St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – NYC Holiday Pop-Up
Friday, December 7 & Saturday, December 8
10:00 am – 7:00 pm
168 Bowery, New York, NY
On December 7 & 8, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® celebrates 15 years of its Thanks and Giving® campaign with a two-day holiday pop-up event in New York City’s Bowery/Soho neighborhood. The public is invited to join St. Jude and its partners to learn more about the hospital’s life-saving mission and share what they #GiveThanks for this holiday season. Several St. Jude celebrity friends are also planning to stop in over the course of the two days.
Guests will be welcomed by a cozy holiday atmosphere where they can sip hot cocoa while perusing a selection of holiday gifts that support the St. Jude mission: Finding Cures. Saving Children.® Activities include a DIY station to create festive ornaments, holiday cards and other heartwarming creations to send back to the kids at St. Jude. Attendees will also have more than one chance for “instagrammable” moments — with an eye-catching, festive holiday photo booth.
About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital:
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Its purpose is clear: Finding cures. Saving children.® It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. 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. Join the St. Jude mission by visiting stjude.org, liking St. Jude on Facebook, following St. Jude on Twitter and Instagram and subscribing to its YouTube channel.
