Sal's Pals - committed to finding a cure
Sal was diagnosed at birth (2001) with the genetic disease
cystic fibrosis (CF). In order to help find a cure for CF, in 2003 a
special group of family and friends came up with idea of "Sal's
Pals" Charity Event. The charity event consists of dinner,
entertainment, drawings, door prizes, national sponsors and
live and silent auctions. The event has continuously been a
sell-out with much success in part to our local and national
sponsors as well as a long list of celebrities that have helped
join in on our cause.
One-hundred percent of the proceeds are presented to the CF
Foundation at The "Great Strides" walk-a-thon held nationally
each year. Great Strides is the Foundation’s largest national
fundraising event in the country. The Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation is one of the most efficient organizations of its
kind and is an accredited charity of the Better Business
Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance.
The money raised by Sal’s Pals helps to support the mission of
the CF Foundation.
Sal's Pals has raised over $1,200,000 in 14 years. This proves
that every day people can make a difference in this world!
Together we can give a future to many children, adults and
families that a cure will be found for people like our little Sal.
