Kelly Smith, partner with Urban Real Estate, served with other tremendous volunteers for the third annual Chicago Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation fundraiser, “Aged to Perfection: Bourbon and Bacon”, held at Binny’s Lincoln Park Tasting Room on November 9. Guests in attendance and sponsors raised more than $39,000 to help continue to fight the battle.
Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. According to the foundation, the median predicted survival age is close to 40.
The event was again co-hosted by ESPN Radio’s Carmen DeFalco, of the “Carmen & Jurko” Show. “This is a pertinent disease that needs continued funding to support the innovative research and clinical trials to help find a cure for patients living with CF,” said Smith. “Every contribution helps in making milestone changes a reality for those who count on us the most."
