Sofia Vergara Supports St. Jude Charity Event

St. Jude

St. Jude has a powerful new supporter...Sofia Vergara

According to People En Español, the Modern Family star will join Latino singers, Luis Fonsi and Prince Royce, in support of the Tenth Annual Thanks and Giving Campaign at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The campaign helps battle childhood cancer while providing schooling for the children, housing for their families, and more. 

“As a mother and cancer survivor (thyroid), there is nothing more important to me than helping to support the work of St. Jude,” Vergara said. “They help save the lives of children around the world.”

Additionally, ManaBanda El Recodo, Carlos Vives, Chino y Nacho and Danna Garcia will be supporting the campaign, creating awareness through social media and radio commercials.

The hospital has the best survival rates in the world for various types of childhood cancer. “The family never receive a bill from St. Jude,” the hospital said in a statement, “including [the] treatment, transportation, and housing.”
