Due to COVID-19, the CF Foundation’s Wisconsin chapter will be hosting our 2021 Breath Of Life Gala virtually this year, as nothing is more important than the health and well-being of the CF community.
We have been inspired by the strength and generosity demonstrated by Gala supporters in our community for many years. Although we won’t be together in person, we hope you will continue to help advance our mission to cure cystic fibrosis by supporting this incredible annual event! Please consider sponsoring, donating, bidding on our auction items, and joining us virtually as we celebrate together.
Our live virtual celebration will be on Thursday, October 14th at 7:00 PM. This will be a moment you won’t want to miss!
Our virtual event will feature speakers and friends throughout the Wisconsin CF community. Led by our Emcee Tom Durian from TMJ4, we will connect with one another, highlight our premier auction items, and hold our annual “Bid For A Cure” program for those who want to make a 100% tax deductible donation.
Together, we hope to raise at least $110,000 this year. With your support, we are confident we can reach our goal.
