Due to the unprecedented circumstances involving the coronavirus pandemic, we have reimagined this event with the safety of our community in mind. The event will be virtual this year, and the name has been changed to reflect the CF Foundation’s 65th anniversary and that we will be working together to meet one common fundraising goal. What hasn’t changed is our commitment to relentlessly pursue a path to a cure – Until it’s Done.
The Wichita Wine Opener – Stronger Together for 65 Years - honors the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s 65 year legacy of bringing families, friends, medical professionals, and researchers together to achieve one common goal – a cure for all people living with Cystic Fibrosis. This year instead of individual candidates competing for a title, we are coming together in a collaborative effort to raise money as a team of All Stars. We believe that we are truly stronger together.
This year’s event will be hosted in a virtual format and will include testimonials, wine tastings, an exciting Bid for the Cure, and more. Although our community has faced many challenges this year, we remain committed to continuing our 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.
