As the famous saying goes, the show must go on, and it will!
The always successful A Night for CF annual fundraising gala is pivoting with the times this year.
Our gala tradition has evolved over time, but the touchstone of the festivities remains the same - a night to spend together (although apart) and raise much-needed funds for an organisation that supports, advocates and gives back to so many.
This year, on Saturday September 19, we are bringing the magic of A Night for CF un-gala ball safely and directly into the homes of our long-time supporters and hopefully some new friends too, creating a virtual experience!
This year, virtual events are all the go, which means the choice is yours on how you would like to celebrate the evening. A Night for CF 2020 un-gala ball is a fun opportunity to host a dinner party with friends (if your restrictions allow it). Whether you buy an outfit to dress up or decide to wear your favourite onesie, there is freedom in how you and your friends can toast and cheer in finding a cure for CF.
We encourage everyone to post selfies on social media to capture this once-a-year event, and you may even win a prize!
It would not be A Night for CF without our silent auction and our crowd-favourite Wine Wall. This adult lucky dip will be available on the night until it runs out, so make sure you get in quickly by registering for notifications when the 'wall' goes live! For the most coveted silent auction items, the bidding will get underway well before the start of the event, prompting excited and spirited participation.
Cystic Fibrosis Community Care relies heavily on donations from individuals, businesses and organisations. With as little as 20% of funding from the government, without your support, we could not do what we do. During these difficult times, we appreciate the generosity of all our supporters and donors. Because of your contributions and participation, the impact you will have on the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis, their families and friends is profound.
