Hosted by Lourdes Fanjul, Talbott Maxey and Thomas C. Quick, the event will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.


Thanks to support of generous donors at fundraisers like this one – 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.


“It is an honor to help plan this event, knowing we are making a difference in the lives of children whose families are going through one of the most difficult times of their lives,” said Fanjul. “We look forward to welcoming celebrity Chef Anthony Lamas and know he will add some spicy Southern fun to our evening celebration for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”


Chef Lamas is one of the Food Network’s “Extreme Chef” winners and owner of Seviche restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. He will prepare recipes from his debut cookbook “Southern Heat,” which combines the best ingredients of the South with a southern flair tied to his Latin roots. Time for a book signing is planned.


“I am honored to stand behind the esteemed doctors and scientists at St. Jude who refuse to stop working until no child dies from cancer,” said Maxey. “It is our hope that this event helps raise awareness about the research breakthroughs St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is making because every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.”


Individual tickets are $500. To make a reservation or learn more about sponsorships, contact Barbara Mari by emailing [email protected] or calling (305) 265-1371. Seating is limited.
