Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening genetic disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide) have CF.
In people with CF, a defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:
- Clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections.
- Obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down food and absorb vital nutrients
As part of their fundraising efforts to aid in the search for a cure, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Virginia Chapter will host their inaugural Brewer’s Ball on Friday June 13th at 7pm, to celebrate Richmond’s finest breweries, restaurants, cocktails, and musicians. The evening will also serve as a time to honor young professionals who have spent months raising money for the foundation. The Virginia War Memorial will serve as a excellent backdrop for an fun evening enjoying the best of Richmond while raising money for a great cause.
Tickets for the event are $75/person ($45 tax deductible) and includes all food and drink and can be purchased here.
