2012 Pay It Forward Party
A great time was had by all at the recent Pay-it-Forward Party fundraiser, held on September 15 at the Renaissance Hotel at North Hills. We hosted an evening of food and fun, with WRAL-TV Anchor Debra Morgan as Mistress of Ceremonies and AT&T North Carolina President Cynthia Marshall as Honorary Chair, raising a record amount of approximately $222,000. This revenue will bring us closer to our goal of helping one Triangle cancer patient every day this year – 365 days; 365 patients.
We are tremendously proud that CCF has now helped more than 1,500 cancer patients and has surpassed $1.3 million dollars in fundraising!

Sparkle with a Passion New Year's Eve Bash
The Sparkle with Passion New Year’s Eve Bash held to benefit the Caring Community Foundation was a memorable evening filled with elegance and red carpet touches. We were dazzled by Garner’s Grand Marquise Ballroom, live entertainment, and delicious food provided by local restaurants. Our featured speaker, Shauna Adams, inspired us with her courage and reinforced our commitment to the Foundation’s cause. Our deepest thanks go to all who attended as well as the organizing committee and our event sponsors: Anfesa Jewelers and Saad Investments. The funds raised at this event will make a difference in the lives of the patients we help in our community.
