I am participating in the Fashion Breathes Life Gala to raise funds for an amazing cause, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Over the next few months, I’m going to be working to raise critical dollars in efforts to help find a cure for CF. My hard work will culminate on February 1, 2020 at the 5th Annual Fashion Breathes Life Gala, a cocktail couture event where I will walk the runway! Those of you from Charlotte may know a little about this event, it is one of the city’s premiere fashion events. FBL has been consistently raising more than $250,000 (in one night!) and attracts some of Charlotte’s most fashionable elite. I have lofty goals to meet, but with your help and support I know I can make it happen!
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects children and young adults. I’m raising funds in honor of local families affected by CF. These seemingly healthy-looking children take more than 30 pills a day, endure grueling breathing treatments and live each day with a disease for which there is no cure. Advances in treatments for CF continue to be made, but your help is needed to help keep up the momentum in drug development, research, care, and education programs.
There are a couple of ways you can help me meet my Fashion Breathes Life goals. Please consider a general donation or purchasing a ticket to the event. The event is February 1, 2020 and tickets include a fabulous dinner, open bar, the opportunity to bid on live & silent auction items, live entertainment and of course, the fashion show! Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively—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. Plus, donations are tax-deductible!
