Pedal for Patients & Fun with Friends, Fall Open House, Oct. 19, 2014
Alliance supporters, volunteers and staff enjoyed October's gorgeous Fall weather with a recreational bike ride and our annual "Fun with Friends" mini-food truck rodeo! Participants in our first annual "Pedal for Patients" ride chose from three rides on the newly-opened Neuse River Greenway Trail - five, 10 or 15 mile loops. Afterwards, all were invited to our Fall open house event at Alliance, with food trucks, bluegrass and tours of Alliance.
In Her Shoes, Women's Leadership Luncheon, May 1, 2014
Our inaugural Women's Leadership Luncheon was a smash success! Held at the Raleigh Convention Center, over 200 men and women joined us for lunch to learn about Alliance's female patients. Attendees enjoyed remarks from keynote speaker Dr. Wendy Brewster, Director of the Center for Women's Health Research at UNC, as well as from Alliance's Medical Director, Dr. Tara Lewis. We launched the Alliance Circle -- a donor group supporting one year of medical care for three female patients -- and 29 founding members joined.
Farm to Table Dinner, May 4, 2013
Alliance rang in its tenth year with a Farm to Table celebration. Our gymnasium was transformed into a delicious dining experience, with long picnic tables covered in family-style dishes prepared by Chef Chad McIntyre using fresh and local produce, including kale from Alliance's Community Garden.
Over 300 guests attended, enjoying, among other dishes, Alliance's famous Kale Salad and Market's Three-Cheese Mac & Cheese.
