Dear Friends and Family,
I can't believe that Brewer's Ball 2020 is just around the corner. This year, we're excited to announce that we've moved the event to The Anthem at DC's booming District Wharf. The event will take place on March 28th.
If you can't make the event, please consider making a donation - every dollar helps us reach our goal of adding years to lives.
It's hard to believe that this is my 15th year working on the CFF Brewers Ball planning committee. We've seen our event grow to become the premier craft beer event of the season, hosting over 40 popular breweries and 30 delicious restaurants. Our guests enjoy unlimited samplings of handcrafted beers and tastes of the best local cuisine. Join us for this great celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Brewer’s Ball!
Get ready to dance the night away with live entertainment, or bid on unique silent and live auction items and experiences while helping us raise funds to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. Take advantage of this annual tradition by inviting your family, friends and clients to enjoy handcrafted brews and signature samplings from the hottest eateries in DC.

No effective treatments for cystic fibrosis existed 50 years ago and little was known about the disease. Today, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation maintains a robust pipeline of therapies that target CF from every angle, including the root cause of the disease. Nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of the CF Foundation's support, funded by events like the Brewer's Ball.
As you may be aware, 2019 was an exciting year for the foundation, as many patients were introduced to Trikafta through the FDA approval. This treatment has shown early signs of lung improvement, stamina, and overall health. The funding and research behind the Trikafta treatment is directly related to the money that we have raised from events like this.
While Triktafa has shown massive improvements for those fortunate to be able to get it, there are still a significant number of genetic mutations of the disease that it doesn't treat. It remains the mission of our family to continue to help the Foundation until a cure is found. The Foundation continues to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to help discover and develop breakthrough CF therapies that have improved the quality of life and life expectancy for people with the disease.
If you're unable to join us for Brewer’s Ball, please consider making a donation! Over 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly towards the funding of a cure—the highest percentage of ANY health organization in the country.
As always, thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you on March 28,
