15th Annual FedEx/St. Jude Angels & Stars GalaSaturday, May 20, 7pm-1am – InterContinental Miami, 100 Chopin Plaza, Miami

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital‘s supporters and friends joined for the 15th annual FedEx/St. Jude Angels and Stars Gala in downtown Miami at the Intercontinental hotel. This celebration of old Hollywood glamour gathered philanthropists, influencers and celebrity friends from the South Florida community to honor the true stars —the children and families of St. Jude. 

This event was co-founded in 2002 by model and entrepreneur Daisy Fuentes. Since that time, the Miami gala has raised more than $5 million in cash and pledges. The annual event, chaired by Venezuelan entrepreneur Mashud Mezerhane raises funds to help ensure 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.

This year’s honoree was Latin actress and national television personality, Adamari López, who received the 2017 “FedEx/St. Jude Angels & Stars Lifetime Achievement Award” for her unwavering dedication to raise funds and cancer awareness in the Hispanic community promoting early detection. Julio Barrionuevo, Senior Vice President, Operations for FedEx Express Mexico, Central America, Caribbean and Global Service Partners will also receive a an award for his commitment and longtime leadership as the gala’s co-founder.
