Chaired by Jennifer Kelley Killian, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosted its annual “Uncork the Cure” event at the Fair Grounds on the evening of Thursday, November 14. The evening featured delicious champagne tasting and accompanying edibles from some of New Orleans’ finest eateries, as well as silent and art auctions with entertainment by Badeaux’s DJ Service and Event Lighting. Some champagne sampled at the event included Nicolas Feuillate, Mumm Cordon, Ferghettina Brut, Perrier Jouet, Mumm Nappa and Caposaldo Prosecco.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a national organization that raises money through special events to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, a respiratory and digestive disease that’s the leading genetic killer of children and young adults in the United States. Because of the fundraising efforts of the foundation, life expectancy among individuals with cystic fibrosis has increased from 5 to 38 years in the past few decades.
