Capt. Chesley (Sully) Sullenberger to be Honored at
 4th Annual Palm Beach Dinner Benefiting St. Jude
Children’s Research Hospital®

11-year-old from West Palm Beach to share his triumphant
battle over cancer 


Palm Beach, Fla. – On Feb. 29, Capt. Chesley (Sully) Sullenberger, often referred to as a hero for safely landing a U.S. Airways jet on the Hudson River in 2009, will be honored for his humanitarian efforts and support of the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® at the 4th annual Palm Beach Dinner at Club Collette in Palm Beach. Chairing the event are Lourdes Fanjul, Talbott Maxey and Thomas C. Quick.

This intimate dinner will celebrate the breakthrough research and care at St. Jude during the last 50 years. Guests will have the opportunity to sit with leading doctors and researchers from St. Jude to learn about the latest studies and the evolution of treatment for those fighting childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. 

“Support from events like the Palm Beach Dinner is instrumental to our mission,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising organization of St. Jude. “We are so grateful for the caring donors and friends, like Capt. Sullenberger, who help us ensure that our pioneering research and groundbreaking treatments will continue to give hope to children and their families in communities everywhere.”

Last year Sullenberger visited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to salute some of his heroes – children battling cancer and other deadly diseases – and produce a public service announcement that inspires others to get involved.

“St. Jude children are the epitome of faith and hope,” said Sullenberger. “I am so grateful that I can help in the fight to end childhood cancer through this benefit dinner because the proceeds will fund the research and treatment they desperately need.”

Among Sully’s heroes is Brian, an 11-year-old from West Palm Beach, who is living in remission – thanks to the lifesaving work conducted at St. Jude.

That work includes research like the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital-Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project. Launched in 2010, the three-year, $65 million initiative allows researchers to better understand the genetic origins of childhood cancer.

In the last five decades, our researchers have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancer from 20 to 80 percent. St. Jude has raised the level of cure rates for the most common form of cancer (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) from 4 percent in 1962 to 94 percent. Other research studies at St. Jude pushed the survival rate among adolescents, ages 15-18, from 59 percent to 88 percent by replacing radiation of the brain with chemotherapy.

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
