At the event, held on the Thursday night of Super Bowl Week in Miami, Jim Kelly – the Pro Football Hall of Fame Buffalo Bills quarterback who led his team to four Super Bowls — was honored with the prestigious Pat Summerall Award.
Created by Cheryl DeLeonardis of Ocean 2 Ocean Productions, and now in its 15th year, this event has raised nearly $8 million to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®: Finding cures. Saving children.®
This was made possible with the generosity of presenting sponsor KBR, as well as Delta Air Lines, Anthony R. Abraham Foundation, and many more.
The funds raised by the annual Legends for Charity dinner are critical given that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
