Graham’s Foundation Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary Raises over $40,000, and Honors James Moore, MD, PhD

Graham’s Foundation’s ‘Tinis for Preemies NYC event was a huge success, celebrating the organization’s 10-year anniversary and its achievements, while also raising over $40,000 for the Foundation’s programs. In addition, the organization honored James Moore, MD, PhD, of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center for his lifelong dedication to improving outcomes for premature babies and their families.

A special “THANK YOU” to our corporate and individual supporters. You make everything we do possible.

Scroll down for highlights from the event.

Each year, Graham’s Foundation honors an individual whose contributions have led to significant advancements for preemies and their families. This year’s recipient was James Moore, MD, PhD, (center) of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. Dr. Moore is surrounded by representatives from Mead Johnson Nutrition from left to right: Rick Skaar, Laura Montle, Dr.James Moore, Jessica Delvecchio, Michelle Snelbaker, Michael Peapos.

The award was a one-of-a-kind featuring the winning artwork from our “From Preemie to Future Picasso” art contest. Dr. Moore praised his team for improving the outcomes of premature babies, noting he was accepting the honor and award on their behalf as well.

Guests sipped technicolor martinis (provided by Tito’s Handmade Vodka) as they mixed and mingled with others who share a passion for Graham’s Foundation’s Mission to support, comfort, inform and guide families who experience a premature birth.

Hands were flying during the Fund A Family auction. Proceeds from the auction support the Graham’s Foundation Care Package program that includes a Care Package sent to preemie parents, the MyPreemie App, and our 24/7 Preemie Parent Mentor hotline.

Supporting Preemie Parents in Difficult Times

As we work together through these challenging times, you may have questions about how Graham’s Foundation is supporting our preemie parent community. Fortunately, because our support programs have always been delivered virtually, we are equipped to deliver all of our programs today, tomorrow, and into the future to continue to meet the psychosocial needs of parents.

Our Care Packages offer helpful tips for self-care and navigating the NICU and going home (our supplies have been in stock since before the COVID-19 outbreak), our MyPreemie app provides critical preemie-related information and helps parents journal their NICU experience, and our three dozen trained mentors are available to lend an ear and offer words of advice and encouragement.

In such a difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are here for the most vulnerable members of our community and Graham’s Foundation is ready. We are grateful to our volunteers and the individuals and industry partners who make generous donations that enable us to develop and deliver our support programs.

In Gratitude,

Nicholas Hall, Founder

Graham’s Foundation
