MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Mempho Music Festival is getting ready to hit the stage at Memphis Botanic Garden this fall and it’s named St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as the benefiting charity partner.

Organizers say the partnership will span three years.

“We’re thankful for the generous commitment from Mempho Music Festival and grateful for the support that this event and the great city of Memphis will bring to make a difference for St. Jude kids,” said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “It’s inspiring to see how music can be used for good to impact future generations. Because of the support of generous donors and organizations, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital continues to accelerate research and advance treatments for kids everywhere with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”

The 2021 Mempho Music Festival will be from October 1-3.
