A Mardi Gras Masquerade
Each year, Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) hosts a fundraising event, A Promise of Hope Affair. In addition to dinner, there is a silent and live auction with dancing later in the evening with music provided by "Slapnation". Our 13th annual A Promise of Hope Affair will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at the Newport News Marriott at City Center with a theme of “A Mardi Gras Masquerade”. This will be a fun-filled evening with a Text2Bid silent auction, dinner and drinks, casino gaming, and dancing... A night to be remembered!
All funds raised during this event provide financial support to our Direct Patient Services division, which helps patients obtain access to quality healthcare and overcome obstacles to that care. Thus, enabling PAF to continue the day-to-day work of helping patients resolve their insurance, job retention and/or debt crisis matters relative to their diagnosis of a chronic, life-threatening or debilitating disease.
Patient Advocate Foundation, was established in 1996 as a national 501(c) 3 organization with a mission of “safeguarding patients through effective mediation assuring access to care, maintenance of employment and preservation of their financial stability.” PAF serves as an active liaison between the patient and their insurer, employer and/or creditors to resolve insurance, job retention, and/or debt crisis matters relative to their diagnosis through case managers, doctors and health care attorneys.
