da Vinci Xi Arrives
SJMC Reveals the Latest Technology
The da Vinci Xi looks like it could have arrived from the future.
This state-of-the-art robotic surgical system is a new addition
to St. Jude and was welcomed with excitement on March 30 by
employees, guests and students from Laguna Road Elementary
School. Charitable funds from our community made it possible
for St. Jude to purchase the system, which is designed to assist
surgeons in performing complex, highly accurate, minimally
invasive surgical procedures with high-definition, 3-D views of
anatomical structures. Additions of such advanced technology
are one way that the community and St. Jude work together to
provide the highest-quality care to those we serve.
Laguna Road Elementary students enjoyed a hands-on experience of da Vinci Xi. This
opportunity allowed guests to gain a better understanding of the systems capabilities.

A Hole in One: St. Judes 39th Annual Golf Classic


Hundreds of golfers hit the green at the 39th Annual Golf Classic on May 16 at Los Coyotes
Country Club, raising more than $155,000 to support innovation and excellence in Stroke Care
at St. Jude Medical Center. Along with rounds of golfing, the day was filled with delectable food,
friendly competition and camaraderie among the participants. Many of us look forward to this
tournament every year. Its an exciting way to come together and support St. Judes mission of
serving our community, said Jeff McHugh, Golf Committee chair.

Care for the Community
Dancing, Baking, Making a Difference
Our supporters did us proud once again at the Neighbors Helping Neighbors
dinner, raising nearly $134,000 for St. Judes Care for the Poor Program.
Summit House Restaurant, which generously underwrites the event,
welcomed, wined and dined some 200 guests. The funds raised help St. Jude
provide much-needed services to low-income members of our community,
from youth to seniors to homeless individuals. Care for the Poor also
benefited from the recent ShowCare Music and Talent Competition and
St. Cecilia Schools bake sale events where our neighbors share their
talents, time and resources for a truly worthy cause. Caring for the
underprivileged in our community is at the heart of St. Judes mission.
We are grateful for our community members, ages 5 to 95, who help us help
those in need. Care for the Poor includes our Senior Services program, the
Neighborhood Health Center, support services for homeless individuals, Pictured above: Phillip Sanchez, Deborah Sanchez, Pat Ritchie and
