Event to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®

The Memphis Grizzlies are inviting fans from across the Mid-South to join them as they take their moves from the hardwood to the dance floor for the Fifth Annual Grizz Gala, presented by MGM Resorts International’s Gold Strike Casino Resort. The event will take place at Gold Strike Casino Resort (1010 Casino Center Dr., Tunica 38664) on Saturday, Jan. 11 from 7 p.m. - Midnight.  All proceeds from this event benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.

Tickets will be available at the door at MGM Resorts International's Gold Strike Casino at 6pm for $150 per ticket.

The blue tie affair will give fans a chance to take part in an evening that brings the class and excitement that the Memphis Grizzlies represent on the court and in the community.  Gold Strike Casino Resort’s world-class culinary team will prepare a delectable menu of heavy hors d’oeuvres for attendees to enjoy. Throughout the evening guests will be able to enjoy the sounds of Garry Goin and the Memphis Grizzlies House Band, an open bar and will also have an opportunity to meet and participate in interactive games with Grizzlies’ players Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Mike Miller, Ed Davis, Kosta Koufos and Jon Leuer.

Grizz Gala guests will also have the opportunity to take part in a live and silent auction with one of the most impressive collections of sports memorabilia and one-of-a-kind fan experiences in Grizzlies fundraising history. All proceeds from the auction will benefit St. Jude, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
