The Hearts for Hope Foundation and Cibo Matto invite you to the 2nd Annual Sip For A Cure Wine and Beer Tasting Event on Sunday, September 13, 2015 from 2-5pm. The Hearts for Hope Foundation is a “non-profit organization started in 2009 with the mission to provide financial aid to families battling Cystic Fibrosis (CF). The foundation has raised over $400,000 and has been instrumental to many families in alleviating the financial burden that comes with having a CF patient to care for.” Cystic Fibrosis is a life threatening disease for which there is no cure.
The Hearts for Hope Foundation was founded by the Finegan family from Mansfield. Their two daughters, Katherine and Fallon, were diagnosed with CF, and their son James carries the gene. During their most difficult times, the donations from the Foundation gave them the financial and emotional support they needed. When their daughter Fallon passed away in 2010 at the age of 16, their mission grew to include so many more families. Diane Finegan says, “The most important thing about the Hearts for Hope Foundation is that what started off as a foundation that our family had established for us when we were in crisis, has really turned into Fallon’s greatest legacy.”
In honor of “Fal”, we hope you can join us and support these families who need your help.
