The annual Cooking For A Cure
fund-raiser took place on Friday night at the Memphis Botanic Gardens. It benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Camp Sunshine.
The Noyes Brain Tumor Foundation
, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide funding to the brain tumor program at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
, organizes the event. The foundation also supports Camp Sunshine
in Casco, Maine, a camp for families of children with cancer. The Noyes family started the foundation back in 2007 after their son, Matthew, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in 2002.
By raising funds for the St. Jude Brain Tumor Program, the Noyes Brain Tumor Foundation hopes to improve survival rates and decrease side effects for children who suffer from this illness.
The event featured a live auction and food was provided by Lafayette’s Music Room, A Taste Of Heaven Catering, Smokers Anonymous, Folk’s Folly, Bonefish Grill, Spaghetti Warehouse, Babul Tacos & Tapas, Itta Bena, Seasons 52, Outback Steakhouse, P.F.
