The community is invited to join Concerned Nebraskans for Cystic Fibrosis (CNCF) for our 15th annual 65 Roses benefit. CNCF is a non-profit located in Lincoln that works to improve the quality of life of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients and their families, promote public awareness, and support research for Cystic Fibrosis.
The 65 Roses benefit will be held on February 4th, 2017 from 7pm-11pm at Pla Mor Ballroom (6600 West O Street, Lincoln, NE 68528). The annual fundraiser consists of a silent auction, live music entertainment, dancing, hors d’oeuvres, door prize drawings, and a cash bar. Tickets for the fundraiser may be purchased in advance of the event from board members or online at cncflincoln.org for $15 or at the door the night of the event for $20.
Through fundraising, CNCF provides scholarships, grants and funds to promote higher education of Cystic Fibrosis patients and help with the high expenses families must incur due to treatments, doctor and hospital bills, and transplants. CNCF also works to increase public awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and supports research to find a cure for CF.
Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening disorder that causes severe damage to the lungs and digestive system. Approximately 30,000 children and adults have CF in the United States. We are committed to helping those that live in the State of Nebraska to fight Cystic Fibrosis and improve their quality of life.
Organized 40 years ago, CNCF has remained a wholly volunteer organization. Because there is no paid staff to support, all proceeds raised by CNCF go directly to support Cystic Fibrosis patients.
