Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q Fundraiser A Success!

A big “THANK YOU!” to our supporters at Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q! The North Carolina restaurant group known for their legendary Bar-B-Q donated 5% of July 28th’s sales from their Wake and Johnston County locations to the Me Fine Foundation. We are pleased to announce the fundraiser yielded a $2100 donation to our organization! These funds will provide financial assistance and emotional support programs to parents and caregivers whose children are receiving long-term medical treatment from Duke and UNC Children’s Hospitals.

We were humbled by the support generated by our community. Customers, bloggers, radio stations and other non-profits all chimed in on Twitter, showing their appreciation for Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q and support of Me Fine. This kind of supports fuels us to achieve our mission- to provide hope to critically ill children treated by Children’s Hospitals in North Carolina and their families through financial assistance, emotional support and necessary resources, regardless of race, diagnosis, religious affiliation or economic status.
