14th Annual Breath of Life Gala

Event Overview


September 21, 2013

Park Hyatt Aviara
7100 Park Hyatt Aviara
Carlsbad, CA 92011

Dress Attire:
Black Tie Encouraged

The Fourteenth Annual Breath of Life Gala is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's most elegant and anticipated event of the year.  This formal affair celebrates the heroes in our community who are working to provide a hopeful future for those living with cystic fibrosis (CF). It also recognizes the many individuals and their families that struggle daily with this progressively degenerative disease. 

This year's fundraiser includes a VIP pre-event reception, a festive cocktail hour, unique silent and live auction opportunities, a three-course dinner, 2013 "Friend of the Foundation" and "Year of Discovery" Awards dedication, and other breathtaking surprises throughout the evening. After the celebration, dancing and entertainment provided by Random Radio.

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.
