A Night in Monte Carlo

Evening to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital generates $178K

About 200 guests attended St. Jude Presents: A Night in Monte Carlo on April 28 at Scottsdale Hangar One. The party generated $178,000, almost doubling the amount raised at the inaugural event in 2017.

The evening honored Letitia Frye, local auctioneer and philanthropist, with a lifetime achievement award for her efforts in raising money for St. Jude. She received the first-ever Letitia Frye Humanitarian Award.

Oscar De las salas and Carey Peña, founder and CEO of Inspired Media 360, partnered with philanthropists Lynn and Foster Friess to co-chair the event.
