An estimated 30,000 adults and children in the United States and 70,000 people worldwide have cystic fibrosis. It causes debilitating lung infections that lead to premature death. More than 10 million Americans are symptomless carriers of a defective CF gene. Money from this event have helped spur dramatic progress in the lives of those who have cystic fibrosis. Fifty years ago, most children with CF did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
Tickets are $50, ($25 is tax-deductible). And to "go green" no tickets will be mailed, your name will be added to the guest list!
