NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The first-ever Dress Up for St. Jude event was held Thursday night, and offered shoppers a wide array of fashions.

Residents could choose from new to gently-used designers dresses, shoes, and accessories ranging from just 10 to $50.

All of the proceeds went to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's music therapy program.

The fundraiser was organized by a group of Nashville music publishers, who knew how much demand there was in Music City for affordable award show fashions.

The event seemed like the perfect way to bring Nashville residents and St. Jude patients together through the love of music.

“Some really fascinating things are happening at the hospital through music and this was just a perfect way to pair everything that's happening in Nashville with what's going on at St. Jude,” said Jessica Turri with St. Jude Children's Hospital.

Families that use St. Jude's services never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food because the group wants families to focus on helping their kids get better.
