IB Firm Steps Up as Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Supporter

DSCN0288Continuing its efforts to support those in the community, IB member firm Casey & Devoti will once again serve as a sponsor for an event in St. Louis that helps support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Casey & Devoti will join several other local businesses to help sponsor the 12th Annual Wine Opener, hosted by the Gateway Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event, which helps raise awareness and funds for children and adults affected by the genetic disease, is schedule for September 2014 at the Moto Museum in St. Louis and will include wine-tasting stations, raffles, a live and silent auction and much more.

Last year’s event drew nearly 400 attendees and raised more than $70,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

This will be the firm’s second year sponsoring the event. However, firm partner Matt Devoti, who served on the organizing committee for the 2013 event and is serving as “co-host” for the 2014 Wine Opener, is very involved in the foundation. In late January, he was also elected to the board of directors of the Gateway Chapter.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. It is a nonprofit that is dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. The foundation focuses on supporting the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improving the quality of life for those living with CF and to ultimately find a cure.
