The life of Danny Thomas and the history of ALSAC and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital are commemorated in the Danny Thomas/ALSAC Pavilion, located on the campus of St. Jude.
The architecturally unique building contains memorabilia of late entertainer Danny Thomas, founder of St. Jude. The Pavilion is home to Emmy Awards and accolades for Thomas’ television show Make Room For Daddy, as well as other entertainment and lifetime achievements.
Part of the Pavilion is dedicated to Thomas’ life as a humanitarian, highlighting the awards and honors he received for his work on behalf of the world’s children. A centerpiece of this exhibit is Thomas’ Congressional Gold Medal, the highest civilian award given by Congress.
