Our first Gala Dinner in 2016 was extremely successful, selling over 500 tickets and raising $52 000. Going forward we are anticipating it to be one of the premier events on the Geelong calendar.
As a parent, the only hope we have for the future is a CURE for our children and others living with CF and we know funding research is the only way for this to be achieved.
This event aims to raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis and 100% of funds raised is donated to CURE4CF Foundation to support the ground breaking research being carried out by the Adelaide CF Gene Therapy Program.
The team utilises an innovative and cutting edge gene transfer approach that has delivered a number of world first outcomes, including proof that the science works in several non-human models. Pre-clinical trials are now needed to take this potential cure to the next phase – human clinical trials.
This has the potential to cure cystic fibrosis airway disease, transforming the lives of the 3000 Australians living with CF and 70,000 worldwide.
This research is very exciting for those with CF and their families and gives real hope for the future.
