Feastival 2017

Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. Back in the day, kids diagnosed with CF were not expected to reach elementary school age, but over the past few decades, treatment breakthroughs have increased the life expectancy of a person with CF to about 40. That's still far too young.

You can make a difference to these folks by donating to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the world's leader in the search for a cure. Donate the normal way, by sending funds directly to the CFF, or attend Baltimore's second annual Feastival event and enjoy fine food and drink at the same time. Win/win.

The event will take place on Saturday afternoon, June 17th, at Harbor East’s waterfront promenade. Feastival unites some of Baltimore’s hottest culinary talent, with chefs from Azumi, Blue Pit BBQ, Cask & Grain, Clavel, Colette, Gnocco, Gunther & Co., Loch Bar, Wit & Wisdom participating. Guests will feast on delectable bites while sipping stylish cocktails and local craft brews while the enjoy the views along Baltimore’s harbor.

Proceeds from Feastival directly benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. This is a historic time in the fight against cystic fibrosis. Promising therapies that treat the underlying cause of CF, rather than just the symptoms, are in late-stage clinical trials. If successful, these drugs could change the face of the disease and the prognosis of those who suffer from CF.
