Hope Flies Catch the Cure
Thank you Sponsors, Patrons and Friends
The 9th Annual Hope Flies Catch the Cure takes place Friday, September 21, 2018, at Westside’s honest new venue, The Fairmont. Thank you to the 2018 Event Chairs Ashley and Chris Benecchi for so kindly leading our annual celebration.
This high visibility fundraiser, attended by Atlanta business and community leaders, benefits the Foundations 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 approximately $250,00 annually. While mitochondrial disease may sound rare, its 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.
FMM thanks its gracious chairs, Kyle Hinson and Anne Worrell, and 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, one and all!
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 the sophisticated signature menu of food and drink, dancing, and the company of great friends, new and old.
