In addition to music, the concert will include intermissions with culinary content from some of America’s most recognized chefs — including Chef Lorena Garcia, Chef John Mitzewich, Chef Seamus Mullen and Chef Yisus — to make at home and enjoy during the festivities.
"Summertime often brings people together for a favorite pastime: music festivals," said Richard C. Shadyac, Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in a statement. "During this time of social distancing, the incredible ambassadors and celebrity friends of St. Jude are ensuring that our summer does not go by without one, and leveraging their talent to make a huge difference for the children of the world."
"At St. Jude, we are reminded that when we all come together to give for those who need it most, we can make a significant difference, which is why I hope you’ll join us for Music Gives: Together #forStJude on August 13 — six hours total of incredible content and artists," he continued. "Most importantly, giving through events like this when the world is so disrupted enables us to continue to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live."
