The Latest News

2020... what more needs to be said.  As a charitable organization that depends on social gatherings to pursue our Purpose of Improving the NICE experience for preemies and their families, WE MISS YOU.  We postponed both of our major annual events - Juliet's Gala and the Juliet Memorial Golf Tournament - until 2021.  

What we have NOT done is postpone the important work and initiatives that Juliet's Foundation does in the service of preemies, their families, and their caregivers.  Here are some highlights:

  • Funded The Two Hearts Mental Health & Wellness Support Program - a Juliet Grace Smith / Ava Potter Pilcher NICU Mental Health Initiative with initial commitment of $100K

  • Hosted events for families in the NICU at Valentine's Day and Mother's Day

  • Participated as a sponsor in the formal opening of the MedStar Georgetown NICU Family Support Center

  • Continued to support the Books for Babies initiative - started in 2011 - with new books

  • Provided for costumes for NICU preemies at Halloween - check out the MedStar Georgetown Univ Hospital Facebook page for the adorable photos

  • Rescheduled our major events:                                                                                                                                                   SAVE THE DATE - Annual Golf Tournament - April 30, 2021 and Juliet's Gala - November 20, 2021

  • Please support our continued local supporters as they traverse these challenging times: PieTanza, Taqueria el Poblano, Rustico, District Taco, Lebanese Taverna and Bethesda Bagels.

Our Mission

Our mission is to raise money and awareness of infant prematurity, primarily by supporting research and by funding programs and initiatives that comfort Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) patients and their families.  In doing so, we are consistently motivated by the courage demonstrated by Juliet Grace.  We strive to share that example so that she may motivate courage in your lives too.

 

We can't wait to see you in 2021!

The Fisher-Martin Family is yet another excellent example of why our foundation works so hard to support NICU infants and families.  Hear their NICU journey in this touching video from Claritas Creative.
