On November 12th, 2011, Mary Claire’s friends and family will gather to celebrate her “MCSpirit!” at the fourth annual “I ♥ MC” event, a Gala and Silent Auction, which will directly benefit the Mary Claire Satterly Pediatric Oncology Playroom at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, Leukemia Research Grants and the MCSF Digital Art Therapy program.  After a successful event last year in New York, we look forward to bringing the event back home to North Carolina.

Once again, the Marbles Kids Museum will serve as the backdrop for the “I ♥ MC-NC Gala and Silent Auction”. Given Mary Claire’s love for children and the Foundation’s goal of establishing the pediatric oncology playroom, there is no more fitting of a location to capture the spirit of the event. The evening will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, door prizes, gift bags and a silent auction while guests enjoy the entertainment by :DJ Joe Bunn.

(Cocktail Attire) – Coat and Tie for Gentlemen

Corporate Sponsors

As a corporate sponsor, your organization will directly support the development of the Mary Claire Satterly Pediatric Oncology Playroom, MCSF Research Grants, and there MCSF Digital Art Therapy Program.  There are two levels – the Blue Ribbon and the Red Ribbon Sponsorships. Ribbons have always been a way to recognize children for their greatness – in their school’s field day, at the annual spelling bee, or just for trying their best. Certainly the children in the hospital, bravely facing their next round of chemo, deserve their own special ribbon. In honor of this, we have chosen the ribbon as a way to recognize our corporate sponsors for their greatness. In addition to receiving recognition in all printed materials, on the event web site and during the evening of the event, corporate sponsors will receive the following, depending on the level of contribution:

  • Blue Ribbon Sponsorship – $2500
  • Six (6) individual tickets to the event
  • Six (6) VIP gift bags
  • Red Ribbon Sponsorship – $1000
  • Two (2) individual tickets to the event
  • Two (2) VIP gift bags

We greatly appreicate your time and hope that you will consider sponsoring MC’s event this year and making a difference in the lives of children battling cancer.
