Join us on the evening of December 5, 2020 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's annual Breath of Life Gala!
While we won’t be together in person, we can be together in spirit (and virtually!)—showing the strength of our community and passion to find a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis. During times of uncertainty, your dedicated support gives us confidence as we stay on course to achieve our mission. We are excited to celebrate with our supporters and community members virtually this year! The live program will include:
• An amazing auction, featuring premium trips and experiences
• A performance by the sINgSPIRE Virtual Choir, a program by Ashley Ballou-Bonnema that connects individuals with cystic fibrosis from all over the world and serves as a catalyst for community through the life-giving love of singing. Ashley's sINgSPIRE program is a recipient of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Impact Grant.
• An inspiring program, including our signature “Bid for a Cure” moment, featuring Rob and Jennifer Ronnenberg. Jennifer received a lung transplant in 2017 and millions watched the emotional video of her taking her first breath after transplant.
• Presentation of the annual Angela Warner Friend of the Foundation Award to Nikki Malnar, who received a double lung transplant in 2013. Nikki is a member of the CFF Minnesota/Dakotas Board of Directors and has been an avid supporter of the Breath of Life Gala for many years.
And new this year, we're excited to offer VIP pre-event content that will teach guests to recreate the gala experience at home! Tutorials from local chefs, bartenders, stylists, and other experts will be available to VIP guests two weeks prior to the gala. Stay tuned for more information!
Be our guest as we celebrate and reflect on the fundraising and research efforts accomplished because of the generosity of the Minnesota and Dakotas’ community.
Can’t make it but still want to support our search for a cure?
