On June 4th, 2020 I will be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Richmond at the annual Brewer’s Ball recognizing Richmond’s Top 25 Finest Honorees. As an Honoree, I am committed to raising money to help the Foundation continue its research efforts, raise awareness and help fight for a cure. In the campaign’s six-year history, over 90 Richmond “Honorees” have joined together to raise over $310,000 for CF Virginia and a cure for cystic fibrosis through this campaign and the Brewer’s Ball event. But the work is not done!
I am excited to be part of this effort and hope that you feel compelled to donate to the foundation. Any amount you are able to contribute will be used to help support CFF’s mission: to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, partnering with the CF community, and advancing high-quality, specialized care.
Donations can be made securely and safely by clicking the “Donate” button on this page. If you’d like to celebrate with me at the Brewer’s Ball in June I’d love to see you there! Tickets can be purchased below and include food and beverage all evening. Proceeds of ticket sales will also go to the CFF. By donating or buying a ticket you will be supporting my fundraising goal and any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated! Either form of donation is tax deductible.
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. and more than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough.
