UNC Basketball Dream
November 2019

Joyce, a lifelong Tar Heel fan and colon cancer warrior, dreamed of taking her granddaughter to a UNC basketball game at the Smith Center. When her chemo nurse heard about Joyce’s dream, she knew she had to reach out to us to help. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to send Joyce and her family to see UNC’s victory over Gardner-Webb. They even got to meet Eric Montross! The family also enjoyed a stay at the cozy Hyatt Place hotel, which included a surprise of drinks, snacks, and UNC swag in her room! Joyce said, “You all really went all out. I feel like royalty!”

Huge thanks to Board Member Choots Humphries generous donating his basketball tickets and parking pass, to Dawn Williams for organizing the UNC swag and the Eric Montross meet-up, to Hyatt Place Chapel Hill / Southern Village for generously donating a room, and to Angela Brown for the nomination! We are so grateful for your help in making Joyce’s wish extra special!
