The Pinky Swear Story

In December of 2002, nine-year-old Mitch Chepokas, terminally ill with bone cancer, withdrew the entire $6,000 from his savings account and put it in envelopes for kids on the pediatric oncology floor at the hospital.

After giving all of his money away, Mitch’s dad made a pinky swear promise with him to always help children with cancer and their families after he was gone.

Mitch passed away on April 11, 2003, and shortly afterwards, Pinky Swear Foundation was established by his parents to honor the promise he made.

Event Description

Before nine-year-old Mitch Chepokas died from cancer in 2003, his dad made a pinky swear promise to continue to help children with cancer and their families. Since then, over $15 million has been raised to support families across the U.S.

We invite you to join us in Charlotte at the 4th Annual Orange & Blue Gala, celebrating and honoring the 15th anniversary of that pinky swear promise.

Join us for a night of revelry and charity you won't soon forget.

The unforgettable evening will include fine dining and drinks, a silent and live auction, raffles and musical entertainment. Proceeds will further the Pinky Swear Foundation mission to support families' quality-of-life with direct financial aid for basic needs, and through experiences that create emotional support.

  • Buffet, wine and beer included
  • Cash bar
  • Attire: Cocktail orange and blue

NEW THIS YEAR! A limited number of VIP tickets are available for an exclusive pre-event experience filled with specialty cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, as well as exclusive raffle and LIVE auction items. You won't want to miss out on this NEW opportunity!
