Marcum Foundation’s “Hope in the Hamptons” Raises $600,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
AUGUST 11, 2022 (New York City, NY) – The Marcum Foundation raised $600,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at its Hope in the Hamptons gala on July 30.
150 donors attended the dinner dance and charity auction at The Clubhouse in East Hampton, where actor Cuba Gooding Jr. treated guests to a surprise performance of the Beatles classic “Hey Jude.” Celebrity sightings also included basketball star Kris Humpfries and actor/artist Shomari Love, among others. Music was provided by award-winning saxophonist Mark Rivera & the Rockin’ Soul Stars.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the Marcum Foundation’s charity partner of choice.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures and prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family’s ability to pay.
“We are indebted to all of the generous donors, inspiring speakers, entertainers, and everyone who turned out to support Hope in the Hamptons on behalf of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It was a great night for a great cause,” said Tracy Weiner, executive director of the Marcum Foundation.
“Our commitment to raising funds and awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital only gets stronger, the longer we partner with this outstanding institution. I had the privilege of visiting the hospital campus earlier this year and seeing in person the extraordinary care they provide children and their families under truly devastating circumstances. It is extremely fulfilling that so many people stepped up to join us in supporting their life-saving work,” she said.
