My favorite Guys & Dolls memory:  The bidding war for Ava’s (a little girl with CF) painting!  The bid kept getting higher and higher, up to $4,000! Then the auctioneer stopped, turned to Ava’s parents and asked if she would make a second painting.  In tears, they responded YES! And the auctioneer proclaimed to each of the two winning bidders $4,000 and $4,000 for a total of $8,000 raised for CF!

I am involved with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation because… initially because of a friend who has CF! Now, after 5-years, it’s more than just one friend! It’s families and communities who have all been impacted by this terrible disease.  It’s because this organization does GREAT WORK and makes GREAT STRIDES in research and care! The progress I’ve seen in just a short period of time is inspiring! Not only for those with CF, but really anyone with a genetic disease! I’m happy the Foundation has created a space that’s worth my time and support.  Not to mention, we have a lot of fun kicking this disease to the curb, too!
