As you know, we recently completed our Christmas in July campaign at UNC Children’s hospital. We want to thank each and every one of our supports for the kind words, thoughts as well as the gifts that we distributed. The children all had smiles on their faces, which was very rewarding to see! Here are some images for you to see how the day played out as well as information about our upcoming local gala.
Me Fine Foundation’s Christmas in July at UNC Children’s Hospital was a resounding success! Many patients and families enjoyed a Hawaiian Luau-themed party with games and activities in the Play Atrium. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus were on hand for photos and to pass out toys to the children. We know Christmas In July not only inspires hope but also fills a recreation and activity gap in the summer when so many volunteers, staff, and students are away. We look forward to next year!

Me Fine Foundation Local Gala
The Christmas in July campaign is certainly one of our favorites and leads up to our Annual Gala! That is another event with which we need your support. We are aiming to raise $250 000 during the Gala on September 23rd, our biggest fundraising effort, and would love your contribution! You’ll be a part of an evening full of food, drink and entertainment (including both a live and silent auction) to ensure you have a most enjoyable night.
Here is the link for tickets as well as sponsorship opportunities. We also have opportunities related to donation of items and experiences to auction at our live and silent auction. For more information related to this, please get in touch with anyone on the team, and we will be more than happy to assist.
We guarantee you’ll have a fantastic night as you help support the children at Duke and UNC Children’s hospitals!
