WNCN partners with Me Fine Gala to support local families

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The Me Fine Foundation has announced WNCN will serve as the exclusive media sponsor of the 2013 Me Fine Gala to benefit critically ill children and their families.

The event will be held on Friday, October 18, at 7:30 p.m. at Raleigh's Marbles Kids Museum.  WNCN Today's traffic reporter Page Crawford will emcee the event.

The 2013 Me Fine Gala will celebrate the union of Striving For More and the Me Fine Foundation after they merged earlier this year to provide a broader set of programs and reach more patients and families.

The event will feature casino gaming with professional dealers, both live and silent auctions, as well as music by DJ Collin Y.  Event attendees will each receive $1,000 in casino money to exchange for chips. 

When the casino closes, each attendee can cash his or her chips out for casino prize raffle tickets that they can enter to win prizes.  Additional casino money can be purchased.  All proceeds benefit the Me Fine Foundation.

To purchase tickets to the event, sign on as a sponsor or donate an auction item, visit:  www.mefinegala.com.

Me Fine Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to parents and caregivers sacrificing their livelihoods in order to provide their children with state-of-the-art, or even last-chance medical treatment by Duke and UNC Children's Hospitals. 

Me Fine Foundation is committed to ensuring families with children facing a devastating medical crisis are able to receive financial assistance to sustain the loss of income from the dramatic lifestyle changes they face during the treatment process.  For more information, call (919) 202-0086 or visit www.mefinefoundation.org.
