More than 375 individuals attended New Orleans Night Oct. 30, 2018, at City Club in downtown Raleigh in support of critically ill children and their families. Organized by the Me Fine Foundation, the masquerade-themed gala raised $220,000 to provide financial resources and emotional support to families with children receiving treatment at WakeMed, UNC Hospitals and Duke Children’s Hospital. The nonprofit also assists these families with major life expenses in situations where a lack of payment may put them at risk for eviction, food insecurity or utility disconnection. 

“Our annual gala ensures that we can meet the constant flow of referrals from our hospital partners to address the individual needs of families in crisis,” says Joey Powell, Me Fine Foundation’s executive director. “Through the generous outpouring of support from attendees at last night’s event, we will be able to do even more for families today and in the future.” Learn more at
