Hope Flies Catch the Cure

Save the date for the 9th annual Hope Flies Catch the Cure September 21, 2018  

Abby, Kyle, Anne and Caroline

Hosted at the Stave Room, American Spirit Works, the 8th Annual Hope Flies Catch the Cure was a beautiful night of hope. Thank you to the 2017 Event Co-Chairs Kyle Hinson & Anne Worrell for leading our 8th annual celebration.

This high visibility fundraiser, hosted by Metro Atlanta business and community leaders, benefits the Foundation’s programs and services. Since the first event in 2010, Hope Flies Catch the Cure has become FMM’s signature event, each year hosting more than 300 people and raising over $250,00 annually. While mitochondrial disease may sound rare, it’s web of connectivity to other diseases is far reaching. Mitochondrial disease affects 1 in 2,500 people – adults, children, and teenagers – and is linked as a cause of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Autism, ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases. 

We also want to thank all the sponsors, attendees and volunters for making last year’s Hope Flies Catch the Cure celebration to raise awareness and funds for treatment of mitochondrial disease a huge success! What a beautiful night of inspiration. Thank you!

Hope Flies Catch the Cure 2018 promises to be another fabulous night of dinner, dancing, unique auctions and surprises. We hope you will be part of this exciting evening that benefits the Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine.

Guests enjoy enhanced sponsorship levels and benefits. Several sponsorship levels include reserved tables to host your guests. Every guest at Hope Flies Catch the Cure enjoys dinner and dancing with friends, new and old. To learn more about sponsorships, please contact us at
