FINEST & BREWERS BALL
A CELEBRATION OF ROANOKES FINEST
BEER, FOOD, MUSIC & DIFFERENCE MAKERS
Greetings from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
It is our pleasure to invite you to join us in celebrating Roanokes top emerging leaders and helping to cure cystic fibrosis as a 2018 Roanokes Finest & Brewers Ball sponsor.
In 2017, the Roanoke community and over 225 guests came together for the
inaugural CFF Roanokes Finest campaign and Brewers Ball to raise over $35,000 in
support of the CFF mission (to cure and treat cystic fibrosis) with a memorable
evening of great food, beer, music, auctions and more in downtown Roanoke.
These funds went directly towards funding innovative research and drug
therapies, promoting individualized treatments, and ensuring access to high-
quality, specialized care that will continue to impact people living with CF. Recent
advances include a new triple drug combination that could soon treat the underlying
cause of CF in 90% of CF patients (up from 50% today) and, even more exciting,
mind-blowing gene editing technologies which could allow a CF patient to enter a
doctors office with CF and leave without it.
Many in the medical research field believe that a cure for CF is within reach in
the next 20 yearsand when that happens, you will be able to say you were a
part of making CF stand for Cure Found.
On June 7, 2018, as we celebrate our 2nd year in Roanoke, we will again recognize a
talented group of Roanokes emerging business and community leaders as our 2018
Roanokes Finest. We hope you, too, will join us in supporting these remarkable
individuals by sponsoring this great event in year twoand moving us all closer to
the day when we can celebrate a cure for cystic fibrosis.
Thank you for your consideration. Cheers!

ABOUT CYSTIC FIBROSIS
Cystic fibrosis is a rare, genetic, life-shortening
disease that affects every organ in the body and
makes breathing difficult. In people with CF, a
defective gene causes a thick buildup of mucus in
the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the
lungs, mucus clogs airways and traps bacteria,
leading to life-threatening lung infections.
More than 30,000 individuals in the U.S. have
cystic fibrosis. 1 in 31 Americans are
symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene.
ABOUT THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION
Founded in 1955, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world's
leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation
was started by parents desperate to save their childrens lives.
Their relentless and impassioned determination to prolong life has
resulted in tremendous strides over the past 60 years in
accelerating innovative research and drug development, as well as
advancing care and advocacy.
Virtually every approved cystic fibrosis drug therapy available now
was made possible because of the Foundation and its supporters.
Still, we believe no one should have to die at a young age.
THE CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION,
leading the way
WHY SUPPORT THE CF FOUNDATION?
Many people with CF are living long enough to
realize their dreams of attending college, pursuing
careers, getting married, and having children.
This is due in large part to the work of the
Foundation and the amazing CF community.
We helped discover the gene that causes CF,
created a state-of-the-art model for CF care, and
have funded groundbreaking research. But were
not done. We are working every day to build on this
incredible momentum, and we wont stop until
there is a cure for all people living with CF.
WE ARE ONE. UNTIL ITS DONE.
We will not rest until we have achieved
normal life spans and have a cure for
100% of people living with cystic fibrosis.
WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Sixty years ago, most children did not live long enough to attend elementary school.
Today, thanks to CFF-based research and care, the median CF survival age is now in the 40s.

WHY Imagine struggling for every breathsomething most people dont have to think twice about. For most,
breathing is a voluntary act. For those with CF, this simple act is a daily battle and each day can be a fight to survive.
The defective gene which causes CF substantially impairs normal respiratory and digestive functions, making the
simple acts of breathing and eating a daily challenge. The CF Foundation was founded in 1955 and since, has made
tremendous strides in accelerating innovative research and drug development, and in advancing care and advocacy.
While people with CF are living longer than in the past, we still lose precious young lives every day.
Our story will not end until we achieve normal life spans and have a cure for 100 percent of people with CF.
