Give Now

Cancer shows no mercy. Its dark cloud has touched most of us in some way. But the illumination Gala, The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital’s annual, premier fundraising gala, rallies our community to help make the future brighter in St. Louis and beyond.

All proceeds support the Cancer Frontier Fund to help researchers at the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine accelerate breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. 

In 2015, the event raised a record-setting $2.3 million for cancer research with the help of our generous community. Special guest was award-winning actress and singer Vanessa Williams.

SAVE THE DATE! The 2016 illumination Gala is Saturday, April 16, at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis. The evening includes a cocktail reception, dinner, luxury auction and a special guest performance.
