Hope Was Flying on September 22nd!
8th Annual Hope Flies Catch the Cure a Smashing Success
Thank you to Hope Flies® Catch the Cure event co-chairs, Kyle Hinson and Anne Worrell and Committee Members, Caroline Chisholm, Mandi Coogle, Miller Jackson and Abby King for leading the way to another fantastic evening of friends, fun and fundraising for awareness and research for mitochondrial disease.
Over 350 guests packed the Stave Room at American Spirit Works for cocktails, dinner and dancing. With participation in silent and live auction, raffles and donations to light Fireflies in honor of loved ones, this amazing group of supporters raised well north of $200,000, with gifts still coming in, creating a powerful legacy of hope.
All proceeds benefit the foundation and its mission to accelerate treatments and cures for the many forms of mitochondrial diseases. Many first-time supporters were thrilled to honor the event chairs and help hope fly at FMM’s culminating event for Global Mitochondrial Disease Awareness Week.
Thank you, one and all, near and far, for helping hope fly!
