Roaring 20s-Themed Gala to Help Fight Against Cystic Fibrosis

Nov 02, 2015 07:22PM, Published by Erica Shames, Categories: Health+Beauty, Today




The Central PA Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation invites you to don your fedora and sport your boa at the Roaring 20s Breath of Life Gala Saturday, Nov. 7, at the West Shore Country Club, Camp Hill, starting with the 6 p.m. cocktail hour.

“The annual event is an evening of inspiration, which in good spirit celebrates advancements in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis,” notes executive director Adrienne Mitford.

Speaking at the event will be 30-year-old Thea Rogers, who recently started taking a newly FDA-approved drug, called Orkambi, designed to treat the underlying cause of cystic fibrosis. She will share her unique story, and how the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has helped improve her quality of life.

A team of young professionals has pledged a financial goal to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, including Dale Beshore, Morgan Stanley; Danielle Smith Guillermo, Messiah College; Rebecca Korn, New York Life; Sarah Lanphier, Nuts About Granola; Jennifer Mowery, PHEAA; and Mike Traxler, Reager & Adler, PC; whoever raises the most funds will be honored at the event.

Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects 30,000 adults and children in the U.S. It causes debilitating lung infections that lead to premature death. More than 10 million Americans are symptomless carriers of the CF disease.

For more information about the event, or the disease, call (717) 671-4000.
