Natural Awakenings Washington DC Metro

D.C. Chefs Unite to Help Cure Cystic Fibrosis

Oct 31, 2018 09:56PM
The Metro D.C. Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will host its annual Celebrate Every Breath Gala featuring some of the region’s most popular chefs in a unique, interactive tableside dining experience. Now in its fourth year, the culinary gala has become a favorite local event after being named a top-five charity event by BizBash. This sensory adventure will begin at 6 p.m. on November 11, at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C.

From the tantalizing live auction to the three-course meals prepared alongside sponsors’ tables, this elegant evening will be one of creativity, interactive dining, fine wines and collaboration among the most talented chefs in D.C.—all for an incredible cause: to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 people nationwide.

The evening’s events include the presentation of the annual Hitchcock Humanitarian Award, created in honor of Alfred Hitchcock and his beloved great-granddaughter, Melissa, who lost her battle with cystic fibrosis at the age of 24. This year’s recipient, Alan Homer, is being honored for his philanthropic achievements and commitment to finding a cure for all people living with cystic fibrosis. Throughout the evening, guests can participate in the grand silent auction, featuring exclusive experiences, exotics trips, unique dining experiences and more.
