Wings of Hope Fundraising Gala:
On November 19, 2022, my year-long vision of combining my two passions of aviation and epilepsy advocacy grew into the inaugural year of Wings of Hope: A Fundraising Gala Benefiting the Epilepsy Foundation of AL! From acquiring corporate sponsors and creating a silent auction to coordinating media presence and partnering with vendors, I was genuinely overwhelmed by the community’s support. On November 19, a SOLD OUT crowd of over 200 people gathered at The Southern Museum of Flight, and I raised over $32,000 for The Epilepsy Foundation…making Charlie’s Chance the largest individual fundraising contributor in the country.
Wings of Hope's inaugural year was a smashing success and a huge win for the Epilepsy community! So mark your calendar to join us next year...and annually thereafter on the 3rd Saturday of November. Together we can help patients, just like my cousin Charlie Mae, to become OVERCOMERS.
