Tonight the St. Jude Children’s Hospital gave a special thanks to those who made its Monroe “Dream Home Giveaway” possible this year.
A dinner was held at Catfish Charlie’s to thank the sponsors, donors and others who helped out with this charity.
Organizers said they are happy to give back to these men and women.
“This right here is our opportunity to thank all of our donors, subcontractors, sponsors and volunteers for the work they do year round for St. Jude and I’m just thrilled to see them all here tonight,” said organizer Graesa Amdahl.
More than $750,000 was raised through this year’s campaign. The money will go to the hospital, which provides medical treatment to childred in need.
There are more than 750 St. Jude patients locally in Louisiana.
