Non-profit foundation “uncorks” annual food and wine benefit

ORLANDO, Fla.—(February 26, 2012)—The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Orlando is preparing to host its premier event, The Food and Wine Festival of Baldwin Park, on March 10, 2012, from 6-9 p.m. The event will be held on New Broad Street and will feature a selection of the finest food and beverage vendors, live music by BB King All-Star Band, and an exclusive VIP lounge.
“It’s great to see so many people coming together to enjoy the evening and contribute to our cause,” said Maureen Roth, Development Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. “We have an excellent lineup of sponsors, vendors, and A-list judges joining forces with us this year to ensure we have a successful event.”

For an all-inclusive ticket donation, guests have the opportunity to enjoy the tastes of a variety of food and beverage purveyors, including but not limited to Shula’s Steakhouse, Tap Room at Dubsdread, Brio, and 4Rivers. Additionally, guests have a chance to determine who will win the honor of ‘People’s Choice’ Award. The A-list judging panel and Mayor Buddy Dyer will choose this year’s Silver Plate award recipients.

The Festival will also showcase the CF Lounge, a VIP lounge that will feature a specially developed menu from Stonewood Grill, an exclusive silent auction, entertainment by jazz guitarist, Marc E and a relaxing lounge environment.

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects 30,000 adults and children in the United States and 70,000 worldwide. It is one of most common lung diseases in children and young adults. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a non-profit, donor-supported organization dedicated to supporting the development of new treatments of the disease, improving the quality of life for those who live with CF, and ultimately, finding a cure. The 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.
