Giving Hope: CleverMade Proudly Supports the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

CleverMade proudly sponsored the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s (CFF) annual giving event, “The 26th Culinary Evening with the California Winemasters,” which raised $1.65 million for vital Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research and care programs. 

CleverMade donated 16 liter  CleverCrates, which became bold centerpieces on each table, overflowing with snacks and fruits. Each centerpiece went home with important members of CFF’s community including those who have Cystic Fibrosis or whose lives have been impacted by CF, advocates, volunteers and donors.

   

In 26 years, this event alone has raised $28 million dollars that have gone toward finding a cure. Thank you to CFF for allowing us to be a part of this event.

More important facts about the disease:

  • Nearly every CF drug currently available was made possible through Foundation support.
  • Once considered exclusively a childhood disease, approximately half of all people living with CF today are over the age of 18.
