Each year, thousands of children are sent to Duke Children’s Hospital, the North Carolina Children’s Hospital in Chapel Hill, and WakeMed Children’s Hospital. For many of these kids and their caregivers, diagnosis with a critical or terminal illness impacts them indefinitely. Their lives are thrown into permanent chaos. In addition to the unfathomable emotional burdens that now face these families, the costs of being treated become immense as they often helplessly watch their financial lives unravel.
The Me Fine Foundation exists so that these children and their families will not walk through their journeys of disease alone. Me Fine provides critical financial assistance and vital emotional support. Our programs are designed to keep families together so that children can have the best chance for recovery possible. No insurance plan will help provide what Me Fine does, which is why support from community members like you is so important!
The Annual Me Fine Gala is our signature fundraising event. Our organization receives no funding from federal, state or local government. We rely totally on the generosity of our donors and corporate partners and on the success of this event.
If you want to help fight for these medically fragile children, believe in the work we’re doing, and want to see stronger families making for a better community, please consider being a part of our event!
Here are some highlights from our 2017 gala at City Club in downtown Raleigh:
