The Wine Opener!
Our Event is Going Virtual! Will We See You There?
Due to COVID-19, the CF Foundation’s South Florida chapter has decided to make our 2020 event virtual this year as nothing is more important than the health and well-being of the CF community. We may not be able to be together in person, but we hope you will continue to advance our mission to cure cystic fibrosis by supporting this incredible event! Please consider joining us virtually on October 16th at 7:00 PM as we celebrate together – it will be a moment you won’t want to miss! Feel free to invite others to this fun filled event as well! Spread the word!
When his son, Nicholas, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF), Sal Capano became a dedicated and determined volunteer for the CF Foundation. He created the Care Today…Cure Tomorrow event and never missed an opportunity to educate the world about CF and recruit people to help in his quest to raise funds and find a cure for Nicholas and everyone else who battles the disease. Sal Capano passed away in 2007. In tribute, his wife Lauri and a group of Sal’s friends, affectionately known as “Sal’s Pals,” continued his “Care Today…Cure Tomorrow event in the Spirit of Sal Capano” to help raise funds to support the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Ten years ago, event honorary chairs Lauri Capano, David Greenberg and Michael Rankin added a wine-tasting element to the dinner event, and it evolved into what is known today as "The Wine Opener. Sip...Savor...Cure!” On October 16, 2020, please join us in bringing the community together for live entertainment, auctions and lots of fun to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
