ALBANY, N.Y., August 18, 2015 - AngioDynamics, (NASDAQ: ANGO), a leading provider of innovative, minimally invasive medical devices for vascular access, peripheral vascular disease, surgery and oncology, will once again host the St. Jude Gala starting at 6 p.m. EDT on Thursday, September 3, 2015 at Saratoga National Golf Club. For the first time, the event will feature an intimate concert performance by Sawyer Fredericks, winner of Season 8 of "The Voice" and native of Fultonville, N.Y.
The annual Gala will raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, whose mission is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric diseases through research and treatment. Globally, St. Jude is recognized for sharing its research protocols and treating children regardless of a family's ability to pay, and is considered by many to be the most trusted charity in the U.S. The St. Jude Gala, hosted annually in Saratoga, is among the Capital Region's premier fundraising events. This year's event will honor the Polish American Citizens Club and their long-time supporter of the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital over the past 27 years.
"The St. Jude Gala is a tremendous event that honors the work that St. Jude undertakes every day to prevent, treat and cure serious diseases that children around the world are fighting every day," said Joseph DeVivo, President and CEO of AngioDynamics. "Supporting their work, and honoring the individuals on the front lines of care, is important to every employee at AngioDynamics. I am thrilled to welcome Sawyer Fredericks to help us celebrate the mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital."
The evening's entertainment will be highlighted with a performance from 16-year-old singer Sawyer Fredericks. Fredericks is this year's winner of The Voice, a popular singing competition show aired on NBC. Native to nearby Fultonville, Fredericks is a familiar name to the area, and should bring excitement to the event. The gala will also feature both live and silent auctions
