Dear Friends & Family,
I have been selected by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) to be honored as a “STANDOUT Charlottean” on November 9th. Through STANDOUT Charlotte, 30 outstanding young professionals will be honored for their success in community, philanthropy and industry. The awards presentation banquet recognizes the area’s most involved and compassionate individuals for their outstanding contributions to the greater Charlotte community in a room full of their peers and culminates with the naming of the STANDOUT Charlottean of the Year. The event includes a full upscale buffet, live music, auction and open bar.
Each STANDOUT Charlottean will use their talent, compassion and leadership qualities to further the mission of the CF Foundation. I am humbled by this honor, but excited to have the opportunity to make a difference; in support of my nomination I am raising funds for cystic fibrosis (CF) research and care. I want to introduce you to one of the children I have an opportunity to help… this is Vivi. Though she is doing well now, I want to make sure that she and all the other children living with this horrific disease continue to grow and thrive. By supporting me, you can help us make a difference in Vivi’s life.
Know that your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively—nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue raised is available for investment in vital CF programs to support research, care and education.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now—more than ever—to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research.

Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
