"Summertime often brings people together for a favorite pastime: music festivals," offers Richard C. Shadyac Jr., the president and CEO of ALASC, St. Jude's charity arm. "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."
In a bid to make the upcoming event feel more like an in-real-life music festival, food will also be involved. The concert will include "intermissions with culinary content from some of America's most recognized chefs to make at home and enjoy during the festivities," according to a press release.
