Me Fine Foundation Doubles Ticket Sales, Sells Out Annual Gala to Benefit Critically Ill Children and Their Families
Raleigh, NC, October 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Me Fine Foundation (http://www.mefinefoundation.org) has announced that tickets are no longer available for its annual Me Fine Gala, scheduled for Friday, Oct. 18 from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. at Marbles Kids Museum, located at 201 E. Hargett St. The sell-out event will welcome approximately 300 attendees, twice the number of tickets sold last year, and an additional 10 sponsors.
Me Fine Foundation merged with Striving for More, a nonprofit created in response to the lack of psychological and emotional support available in hospitals for children with cancer, earlier this year to provide a broader set of programs and reach more patients and families. With that in mind, the group set a higher fundraising goal for its annual gala which benefits critically ill children and their families. The goal was easily reached when tickets sold out for the casino-themed event three weeks prior to the gala.
The full sponsor list includes:
Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston
Environmental Holdings Group
FastMed Urgent Care
Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog
Raleigh Heating & Air
Gaming Table Sponsor
DJ Collin Y
Kristen Abigail Photography
Ryan Kelly- Designer
Taylor’s Wine Shop
Whole Foods Market of Cary
Friends of Me Fine and Striving for More

Capstrat – Boomerang Society
Community Focus of North Carolina Inc.

All proceeds from the event go to Me Fine Foundation. Donations to help Me Fine Foundation provide necessary resources and financial assistance to parents and caregivers with children being treated at Duke and UNC Children's Hospitals can still be made online at http://bit.ly/GNMPg4.

About Striving for More, Inc.:
Striving for More was founded by Diane Moore in 2008 after her nine-year-old daughter, Colleen, lost her battle with cancer. During her daughter’s illness, Diane found that emotional support services for children with cancer are under-funded, particularly when hospitals are competing for limited resources. Striving for More programs fund quality psychosocial services, so that every child with cancer receives the critical support they need. Striving for More merged with Me Fine Foundation in August of 2013.
