More than 50 people gathered recently at an invitation-only cocktail reception at Valentino on Worth Ave. to kick off the 8th Annual St. Jude Palm Beach Dinner.  Co-chairs Lourdes Fanjul, Talbott Maxey and Thomas C. Quick were on hand to welcome guests at the boutique.  A percentage of proceeds from the store’s sales will benefit patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“We are so grateful to the team at Valentino for this very special opportunity,” said co-chair Lourdes Fanjul. “It is an honor to work with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to help alleviate the pain of families going through childhood cancer, and this event is critical to the cause. We look forward to joining with other supporters at our annual dinner benefit.”

The 8th Annual Palm Beach Dinner to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will be held April 5, 2017 at Club Colette in Palm Beach.
Leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital 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 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. 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.
Philanthropic opportunities and tickets to the 8th Annual St. Jude Palm Beach Dinner are available. For more information, contact Barbara Mari, 305-537-1429 or visit Join the St. Jude mission by visiting, liking St. Jude on Facebook ( and following on Twitter (@stjude).
