The Faces of Philanthropy: Charlie McNeil & Judy McNeil of NexGen

As have many, Charlie McNeil’s family has been impacted by diabetes. Charlie says, “My wife, Judy, and I do our best by showing our support of this worthwhile cause to one day find a cure for type 1 diabetes. My extended family has had 3 children who have been patients of the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes (BDC) over the past 30 years, and we cannot say enough good things about this center and how it helps thousands of patients each year.”

Judy has contributed her time and talent to the Children’s Diabetes Foundation (CDF) over the past 26 years. She has held various offices on the Guild Executive Committee including Historian and 2011 President. A hallmark of Judy’s service is her “signature gift baskets” that she creates for the annual fundraising event, the Brass Ring Luncheon. For 17 years, Judy has spent countless hours creating 70+ baskets for the event’s silent auction. Charlie and Judy also received the High Hopes Award at CDF’s 2011 Carousel Ball. Judy was recognized as a “Channel 7 Everyday Hero” in 2022 for her ideas, skills, and passion for the cause.
