ST JUDE YOUNG PROFESSIONAL BOARD
The St. Jude Young Professionals Board of Chicago supports the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The board provides networking opportunities including the 4th Annual St. Jude Day at the Derby Party (May 7th) and their signature gala, the 15th Annual St. Jude Harvest Moon, which takes place September 23rd, which is also childhood cancer awareness month. No family ever pays St. Jude for anything, because we believe that all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Through fundraising events and volunteerism, Family Focus’ Associate Board supports the mission of Family Focus; nurturing children and strengthening families. We strive to make the Board experience one in which young professionals can expand their professional networks, experience the way in which our services are transformative, and give back to the Chicago community in a way which is personally meaningful.
