Charlotte Auction Benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Guys & Dolls is one of Charlotte’s premier social events featuring some of the area’s most prominent Young Professionals who join the CF Foundation in the fight for a cure as “Guys” and “Dolls”. Each raises funds in honor of a local child with cystic fibrosis and creates a fabulous Live Auction Package which is sold to the highest bidder on event night. Each year, 700 attendees fill the room for a night of fun, spectacular Entertainment and charitable giving.
Through events like Guys & Dolls, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has raised and committed hundreds of millions of dollars to help develop CF drugs and therapies. The Foundation is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, meeting all of its Standards for Charitable Accountability. The CF Foundation 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 of its mission. Virtually every approved CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support, and research to find a cure is more promising than ever before. Thanks to research and care supported by the Foundation, may people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
Together, we raised more than $270,000 net to support the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) at Guys & Dolls 2014 in February. Please know we will invest your donations wisely; The CF 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 help support our lifesaving mission. Your involvement and financial support are helping to make a difference. Thank you for being an integral part of our CF family.
Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend any indoor CF Foundation-sponsored event.
Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call us at 704-321-7852.
