Plenty New at the Seventh Annual Hope Flies® Catch the Cure Event
Mark your calendars for Friday, September 23 for the seventh annual celebration of Hope Flies Catch the Cure to benefit the Foundation for Mitochondrial Medicine. In addition to the great night you’ve come to expect from Hope Flies Catch the Cure, we are excited to debut several new features at 2016 event.
What’s New with this year’s Hope Flies Catch the Cure?
New Location – Hope Flies Catch the Cure will be at The Stave Room at American Spirit Works, located at 199 Armour Drive in Atlanta. While the address might seem familiar (the space was formerly the Mason Murer Art Gallery), the space has been completely renovated and converted into a special events facility adjacent to American Spirit Works whiskey distillery. It is a refined, yet rustic space with warm urban charm.
New Format – This year instead of a buffet dinner, we will serve a seated family-style dinner with five delicious courses from Endive Catering. Entrees include flavorful herbed chicken breasts and tender short ribs. Be sure and save room for dessert, because Endive will end the meal with its signature bite-size sweets.
New Sponsors – Join us in welcoming new sponsors to our event: Fidelity Bank, The Boston Red Sox and Boston Red Sox Foundation and STAR 94 FM radio station. Attendees will have a chance to bid on one-of-a-kind experiences during the live and silent auction. We’re also thrilled to hear our new radio spots promoting event over the STAR 94 airwaves in Atlanta!
The event will feature open bars, decor by Track Seven Events, table settings and floral by Rooms & Blooms, dance music by Amp’d Entertainment, and a live auction and silent auction directed by Dean Crownover. The auctions will have vacation homes, travel, art, home decor, shopping sprees, jewelry, sports memorabilia, an outdoor lighting package and much more. The event will also have a photo garden and a caricature artist.
Tickets to the event are $200 per person and various sponsorship packages are available. The event hopes to raise at least $250,000 and all proceeds benefit the foundation and its mission to accelerate treatments and cures for the many, many forms of mitochondrial diseases.
