The Reach for a Star Gala is the Gateway Chapter's most elegant and anticipated event of the year. The event will celebrate the heroes in our community who are working to provide a hopeful future for those living with cystic fibrosis. It also recognizes the many individuals and their families that struggle daily with the disease. The night will be full of glitz and glamour as guests enjoy cocktails and a gourmet dinner, bid on live and silent auctions, and dance the night away with live music.

 Important Note on Attendance at Foundation Events: To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection.
Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact, as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to an indoor Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time.
