While we had hoped to be "Together Again" at the Portland Art Museum this year, plans have changed for the safety of all our guests, volunteers, vendors, and staff. This year's Larry VandenBrink's Dinner Gala will still feature incredible profiles of local CF fighters, amazing auction items to bid on, and even a unique at-home dining experience to pair with the virtual program.
Just as people with cystic fibrosis (CF) persevere daily through all the challenges that come with CF, we will do the same as we alter course for the 2021 Larry VandenBrink's Dinner Gala. We ask that you continue to persevere with us as we push forward for another wonderful virtual gala. You are an important part of our progress. With your help, we are confident that one day, no one will lose a child, sibling, parent, or friend to cystic fibrosis. We are not slowing down. We will not leave anyone behind.
Our virtual gala will feature speakers including our Gala Committee Chairs, Rod Harris, Kevin VandenBrink, Drew Conant and Bryan Weil, and other friends from throughout the Oregon & SW Washington CF community. Led by our Emcee, Mike Barrett and Auctioneer, Graham Crow, we will connect with one another, highlight our premier auction items, share stories of CF fighters from our community, and hold our Bid for a Cure for those of you who want to make a 100% tax deductible donation.
This evening of celebration will be on Thursday October 14 at 7:00 p.m. PT, live from your home. Join us for the Pre Show starting at 6:30 p.m. PT. This will be an evening you won’t want to miss!
