The Finest: Top 20 Under 40

Event Overview

2010 The Finest 

October 28, 2011
7-10:30 PM

The Eastonian

Easton, Pa 18045

This year the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) plans to honor men and women across the Lehigh Valley. Those selected exemplify strong leadership qualities, are active in volunteer roles, and have excelled in their chosen profession. The Lehigh Valley's Finest campaign is designed to spotlight young leaders, honoring their professional and charitable accomplishments.

The Lehigh Valley's Finest campaign begins with an Honoree Meet and Greet that formally introduces the 2011 Finest Honorees and culminates with an Honoree recognition dinner in October. As part of their recognition, each Honoree agrees to raise $1,500 on behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This lovely affair is expected to raise more than $30,000.

If you think you are one of Lehigh Valley's Finest or know someone who you think fits the criteria and is under 40, download and complete the nomination form (please see attachment) from this webpage and forward it to 

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation would like to thank the 2010 Foundation's Finest Honorees, Committees and volunteers for making our inaugural event a huge success!

Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of approximately 30,000 children and adults in the US. More than 10 million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. The disease occurs in one of every 3,900 live births and about 1,000 new cases of CF are diagnosed each year. The median age of survival for a person with CF is nearly 37 years.

Thank you to our silent auction donors!

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.
