Cincinnati's Finest

On February 27, 2014, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosted its 5th annual “Cincinnati’s Finest” Finale. Through the generous support of our candidates, sponsors and donors the event raised more than $100,000 to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s mission. This prestigious fundraising event was attended by more than 200 guests, including 10 “Finest” candidates, a local family affected by cystic fibrosis, and many of Cincinnati’s movers and shakers.
