On Saturday, May 15th, St. Jude Children"s Research Hospital and FedEx held their 8th annual Angels & Stars Gala at the InterContinental Miami Hotel. During the gala, Latin Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Juanes was honored with the 2010 "Al-Rashid Hope Award." The award recognized Juanes for his international humanitarian efforts and his quest to help bring awareness to children"s causes. Model and television host, Daisy Fuentes, was also in attendance to support St. Jude and serve as a hostess for the evening. When asked about the gala, Daisy stated that she is "elated to see how the Hispanic community in Miami and around the country has embraced the mission of St. Jude so dearly." Events of this caliber help to support life-saving initiatives such as the St. Jude International Outreach Program, which has dramatically increased the survival rates for children with cancer around the world. This program has partnered with clinics in more than 15 countries including Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras, Chile and Brazil. Overall, an amazing mission for amazing children!!!
