Great food and drinks … what can be better than that? How about eating and drinking for charity? 100% of the proceeds of this event will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a fatal genetic disease that clogs the lungs and impacts the digestive systems of 30,000 children and adults in the United States. In the 50s, few children with CF lived to attend elementary school. Today, thanks in a large part to the progress made by research funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. While this is great progress it is still not enough; our goal is to make “CF” stand for “Cure Found!”
