Once again, the great folks of Minden, Louisiana, are set to knock it out of the park raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

What makes the Minden St. Jude Auction so special?

Every year Minden residents come together as a community to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital through an auction, raffles, a chili cook-off, a cornhole tournament, races, and more. It's a full four days of fellowship, food trucks, and fun activities. And even despite the craziness we've found ourselves living in with pandemics and the like, the 2022 Minden auction raised $2,415,317 for the kids at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

How big is the Minden St. Jude Auction?

The Minden St Jude Auction began four decades ago and has raised over $20 million... that's one of the biggest fundraisers per capita for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital versus other cities in the United States.
