Charlotte Auction Benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Together, we raised more than $261,000 net for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). These are life saving funds toward our quest for a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). Please know we will invest your donation wisely; CFF takes great pride in being one of the most efficient and effective organizations of its kind and is a careful steward of every dollar raised in support or its mission. The Foundation is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, meeting all of its Standards for Charitable Accountability.
As some of you heard on Saturday, the Foundation is the primary sponsor of critical research and is making tremendous advances toward a cure and control of this disease. We depend on the generosity of individual donors and corporations to support our lifesaving mission. Your involvement and financial support are critical to our success. Thank you for being an integral part of our CF family.
If you were unable to hear Katie Parker’s speech, were out of the room when she made it, or were unable to attend, you can watch it on YouTube by clicking here. It’s definitely one for the record books.
