|THIS EVENT WAS SOLD OUT IN 2012
Thank you for your support and generosity at this year's D.C. Brewer's Ball to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We truly hope that you and your guests enjoyed the evening.
While we hope you enjoyed helping to serve up hope, one pint at a time, we want you to know that your contributions go a long way in the game-changing research that takes place in the CF medical community and in the lives of the 30,000 children and adults that live with this horrific disease.
Through our efforts, the life expectancy of a child with CF has doubled in the last 30 years, and research to find a cure is more promising now, than ever. It is through your generosity for events like the D.C. Brewer's Ball, where we raised more than $275,000 this year, that we are able to continue our mission to find that cure.
For information on how to get involved, please contact, Laura Starr, Development Director at (301) 657-8444 x 201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

|Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals with a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) complex shall not attend this event. This is because B. cepacia can be passed between individuals who have CF through close proximity. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. Despite this policy, there might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. For alternative ways to participate and for information about this policy, please contact the CF Foundation at (800) FIGHT-CF or visitwww.cff.org. Consult your CF care center physician with medical questions.
Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event. For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.
Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
