Dear Nancy and Barry:

Many many thanks for your generous support of our 25th Culinary Evening with the California Winemasters.  It is really difficult to express just how much your participation means to us.  We are well aware of how many worthwhile causes you are asked to support and we never take your contribution for granted.  You matter.  And your sponsorship makes a huge difference to our success.  I don’t think it is an understatement to say that we could never hold this event without you.

Thanks to you, this year’s event proceeds brought our 25-year total to more than $27,000,000 in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s vital research and care programs.  When this event began, CF patients were living into their teenage years.  Now, we see our patients living into their 30s, 40s and beyond and every day we are getting closer to a cure for North America’s #1 inherited disease killer of children and young adults. 

In a world where times are challenging and so much is beyond our control, our sponsors, vintners, chefs, guests, volunteers and CF Foundation staff truly are making a difference.  We hope you know that you are saving lives and providing tomorrows every day – and for that, there is simply no way to thank you.

We hope you’ll mark your calendar for May 16, 2015 for our 26th anniversary event as we wouldn’t want to hold this event without you!!

Gratefully,

Barbara Balik
Director of Special Giving
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
