save-the-date copyThe Assistance Fund cordially invites you to our 2nd annual gala, Carnavalia… A Celebration of Life! This whimsical event will transport you to a place where health thrives and no one is denied medications because of an inability to pay. The gala will be held on Friday, September 27, 2013 at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida.

The evening includes a night of New York City themed entertainment, sights and sounds from the city that never sleeps; savory foods and drink, and unique acts. It promises to be an evening of joy, color, movement, celebration and, most importantly, a night of helping individuals in need. Sponsorships are still available. Sponsorships of $3,000 and up include a special VIP reception and gift bags. Individual tickets are $150 each.

The Assistance Fund provides critically or chronically ill individuals with the financial assistance they need in order to receive their life-saving medications. Because, at the end of the day, it’s all about access; access to advanced therapies; access to financial aid; and, access to a higher quality of life.

Carnavalia serves three objectives:

  1. Increase awareness of our organization and the resources we offer;
  2. Raise funds so that we can support more clients who need our help; and
  3. Offer participants a very enjoyable and memorable evening while they help save lives.

We hope you will join us at Carnavalia and help us celebrate life. For more information, contact Rosie Miller, Director of Public Fundraising at 407-367-2899 or

We look forward to making our journey to Carnavalia together.
