Join the Greater Illinois Chapter- Peoria office for the 2021 Breath of life “Meals to Go” event.

While we will not be together in person, we are excited to gather virtually, showing the strength of our community and boundless determination to find a cure for all people living with CF. Our virtual events bring together thousands of community members across the country. During times of uncertainty, your dedicated support gives us confidence as we stay on course to achieve our mission.

Your participation supports the mission of the CF Foundation; 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.

We look forward to being able to provide a Chef prepared “to go” gourmet meal for individuals or couples, along with a fun Cocktail kit to top off the experience.  Each meal will be prepared by our host Chef, Chef Amanda Pyle and packaged for pickup.  Chef Amanda will include instructions on reheating and mixing a signature cocktail for an at home dinner gala experience.  Tune in to the virtual event video, to hear from our sponsors, Chef Amanda, our committee, and event MC.  A silent auction will be a highlight and open for bidding, and a bid for a cure will round out the evening.  Although we will not be able to gather in person this year, we are still able to support this event and our CF Community.  We look forward to you joining us as we gather virtually in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the mission.
