St. Jude Third Thursdays Network
|The mission of the Third
Thursdays Network is to provide Dallas-area young professionals with
an outlet to give back to the community in a social atmosphere. The
primary goal of the organization is to raise contributions for St.
Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The Third Thursdays Network hosts a happy hour for young professionals
on the third Thursday of each month. Past event venues have included
Jeroboam, Salve and Palomino. A $10 donation at the door benefits the
life-saving research at St. Jude. For more information or questions
