Pass the Hat for Annie Nice

$22,515 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 343 people in 25 months
Dear Friends:

Over the years, Annie Nice has been such a gift to Raleigh and to the Irish community here. To many of us, she IS the face of Ireland.  Her boundless energy, generous spirit and enormous heart have helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for charities and for so many deserving people in our community. We are asking you mirror Annie's spirit and to donate to this fund.

On Tuesday night, January 26, 2016, Annie was attacked and mugged less than 5 yards from her front doorstep. She was hit in the back of the head, thrown to the ground, and dragged by three young people after coming home from a meeting.  Annie spent the night at the hospital and is very thankful to the Raleigh Police Department, Wake County EMS, and the staff at WakeMed. Her beloved daughter Roxanne and her dear friend Pete Pagano were at her bedside. She is home now, but her head and body are in a great deal of pain. She is in a surgical neck brace for the next eight weeks and may require surgery due to injured ligaments from being dragged.

We're asking you, her friends and people she loves, to donate to this fund to help support Annie financially at this difficult time.  Annie recently took a huge step and started her own event-planning company, "Irish Mother Productions".  She has been dreaming of this opportunity for a long time, and we're excited to see what the future holds for her. Her injuries, though, and the potential for surgery will make it difficult for her to earn an income for at least the next several months. Please donate generously from your heart to help with this loss of income and for current and future medical bills.

Thank you so much from the bottom of your hearts for your generousity, and please keep Annie and Roxanne in your prayers.

Happy Easter! The month is almost through, and so is Annie's campaign. We can't help but feel such joy for those of you who have helped support Annie during these past few months. Recovery has been slow and steady, but your support and love are never away from her side.

Please continue to support Annie in her work with Tir na nOg Pop Up Pubs. Kilt Night is coming up May 26. Also, she'll be hosting the NC Rose of Tralee Selection on April 9 at Southland Ballroom.

Thank you all so much! xx

Great to hear the fund is doing so well and there was such a great turn out at both fund raisers. It sure is great to live in a community where friends help friends and don't feel that it isn't appreciated. Hope Nancy and her daughter are doing as well as can be expected with the situation that it is. Please let Annie know you are in our thoughts and prayers always. Sue and John Broderick

Hello from Johnston County! I was saddened to hear (on the news) about your brutal attack, and I strongly hope that your attackers are caught and prosecuted. BTW, I wanted to mention that my father was from the Isle of Man. Have you been there? I'll be thinking of you, and following any news updates on your story.
