A DAY OF THANKS FOR DUKE CHILDREN'S SUPPORTERS
On October 16, Duke Children's supporters came together for a day of gratitude and celebration.
On October 16, Duke Children's hosted 160 supporters at a luncheon to honor and recognize donors who have given to Duke Children’s consecutively for ten or more years. The luncheon was held at the Champions Club at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Jamie Spatola, Coach Mike Krzyzewski's daughter, shared her family’s history of involvement with Duke Children’s fundraising. Attendees also heard from Debbie Antonelli and her son, Frankie. Frankie has been a patient at the Duke Children’s Down syndrome clinic since he was six. He is now a second-year college student at the Clemson LIFE program—a milestone Debbie and her family say would not be possible without the treatment and guidance Frankie received at Duke Children’s.
After the luncheon, attendees joined a select group of Duke Children’s Radiothon donors to watch a special Duke Men’s Basketball Closed Practice Session. During practice, Frankie received a signed ball from Coach K and the team.
