Nationwide — St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital is proud to announce the addition of 10x Grammy-winning group TAKE 6 to its Music Gives to St. Jude’s Kids, which provides a platform for music lovers to connect their passion for music to the mission of St. Jude’s to continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
The partnership between TAKE 6 (Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea, and Khristian Dentley) and St. Jude’s includes the incorporation of St. Jude and its mission in their shows and events, and encouraging their fans and supporters to contribute to the life-changing and life-saving work of St. Jude’s, with a percentage of the proceeds of their tour dates donated to St. Jude’s. TAKE 6 will be featured on radio-thon events and will participate in the St. Jude Celebration of Hope in January 2024, an inspiring and educational seminar. Content creators, corporate partners, religious leaders, and members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council also, enjoy the weekend which culminates with an unforgettable dinner and concert.
As parents themselves, TAKE 6 greatly appreciates and admires the work of St. Jude’s. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food so they can focus on their children’s fight to live. Treatments developed through research at St. Jude’s have helped to push the childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since its founding.
The partnership officially kicks off on November 4 with TAKE 6’s performance at the Duncan-Williams Performance Hall of the Germantown Performing Arts Center in Germantown, TN. For tickets, visit www.gpacweb.com or call 901-751-7500.
