Supporting the Lee Family - UNC ESOP

$27,076 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 452 people in 3 months
Created April 11, 2019
We have created a website ( https://www.leefamilysupport.com) to centralize the GoFundMe links and publicize upcoming fundraising events. There is another donation page organized by the Eship Center at UNC ( https://www.gofundme.com/lee-family-support). Both sites support Diana Lee, her brother Raymond and family. This site serves as a support mechanism for Diana and Raymond on behalf of UNC and the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy students, staff, faculty, preceptors, alumni and friends.

On the 10th of April, a massive gas explosion occurred at 115 N Duke St. caused by a gas leak. This was also the location of Kaffeinate, a family owned coffee shop by Diana Lee, her brother, and her father. The building collapsed, and Mr. Kong Lee, the owner and Diana's father, unfortunately did not survive the accident.

Diana Lee is a beloved student of the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, Class of 2021, and a sister of the Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Always full of passion and encouragement, she has always gone above and beyond to empower her peers and serve as a leader and a mentor. A Triangle resident for 20+ years, Diana is also a UNC undergrad alumna, who dedicated herself to pursue initiatives leading to positive changes within the community.

Donations will be delivered directly to Diana Lee to financially support the funeral proceedings as well as rebuilding and other necessary expenses.

This fundraiser is organized by the Lambda Chapter of Kappa Epsilon, a professional fraternity at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy.

Thank you for supporting Diana Lee and her family.

A message from Diana and Raymond: “The staff at Kaffeinate used to joke that all our dad wanted was to be everyone’s dad. The best part of all this has been getting to see all the people who felt our dad’s love and have now come to love us in his honor. We would like to invite you to celebrate our dad’s life, love and impact with us. The visitation will be Tuesday, May 7th from 4-7 pm. The funeral will be Wednesday, May 8th at 11 am. Both events will be at New Horizon Church in Durham (100 Horizon Place Durham, NC 27705).

Our deepest gratitude to New Horizon Church and Hall-Wynne Funeral Service and Cremation for helping us through this time. Our deepest gratitude also to all of you for everything. We hope you will join us so our dad can smile down and see how large his family has grown.”


With love and gratitude,
Friends of Diana
