Medlock and Krieger, friends of more than 25 years share a passion for philanthropy and have organized this event to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.® This year they honored James Peterson, CEO of Microsemi, who has been instrumental in the success of the event and a huge supporter for the mission of St. Jude to find cures & save the lives of children suffering from pediatric cancer and other deadly diseases.
