“Of Wine & Roses" Fundraiser
CFI also hosts special events to get the word out about all that we do for individuals and families affected by cystic fibrosis and to raise the financial resources to accomplish this. CFI recently hosted "Of Wine & Roses," a wine tasting experience fundraiser at Maestro Seafood & Grill in Northbrook. Over 100 attendees were able to sample an interesting collection of wines from around the world and also feast on Grande Hors D'oeuvres.
The program featured a live auction on a variety of items including vacation travel, sporting event tickets, entertainment passes, spa treatments, and fine wine. A silent auction followed that included gift baskets, jewelry, a wine rack, and gift certificates. Funds received from "Of Wine and Roses" are used to aid individuals and families affected by cystic fibrosis throughout the Greater Chicagoland area.
