About

Don't miss the Illumination Gala, The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital's extraordinary event supporting breakthrough cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center. 

Nearly 500 guests at the gala each year share an unforgettable evening of entertainment and philanthropy with the leadership of our region’s top companies, foundations, and boards.

Since 2007, Illumination sponsors and guests have raised nearly $30 million to help speed innovative cancer research that will bring the best possible treatments to patients at Siteman and around the world. 

Together, we are making life healthier and more hopeful for all our families and friends.
