Laura Rozo Benefit Night

Morehead Planetarium East Room

222 East Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC 27514

This event has already passed by. Sorry.

Event Description

Laura is a member of the UNC class of 2014, a sister, a loving daughter and above all a cherished friend to many of us in the Carolina community. Check out her UNC TEDx video at

In summer of 2011, Laura was diagnosed with stage IV Metastatic Rhabdomyosarcoma. She received various treatments from UNC Hospitals; her cancer went into remission briefly but treatment therapies have not stopped the cancer's progression. She completed the last of her palliative radiation treatments and does not plan to undergo further treatment except to minimize pain and maximize her energy.

There are financial implications on Laura’s family created by the increasing level of medical care she needs. Laura knows that her family will continue to face challenges rebuilding their lives after she’s gone.

Knowing that her mother and brother are financially secure would bring Laura immeasurable peace of mind. Please support Laura and her family by joining us at the Morehead Planetarium East Wing, Second Floor on Tuesday April 9th 5:30-7:30pm to fundraise.

Tickets are on sale starting at $15, though you may select higher priced options, which include raffle tickets. At the event you may enter those tickets into a drawing for prizes. Various snacks and light food will be served from Franklin street restaurants. Campus Favorites (Bhangra Elite, MipsoTrio, etc) will also perform.

The raffle will include donated prizes from on campus organizations and groups (like Mipso tickets & CDs, Clef Hangers tickets) as well as coupons and items from stores on Franklin (restaurant coupons and gift baskets). We would like to encourage you all to participate in the raffle but remind you that all prizes are donations based and that we are getting donations up until the event (so we cannot define all the prizes just yet!)

We look forward to seeing you there!
