Eat, Drink and Cure Cystic Fibrosis on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2018
Where: The Abbey Restaurant, Sheldon VT
ShamRockin’ for a Cure VT raises $94,400 for the Party with a Purpose Legacy for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
Recently, Jon and Pam Baker of Roswell, Ga. celebrated a moment they were not sure would ever come. Their sons, Gavin and Jake Baker took their first dose of Orkambi, a drug recently approved by the FDA to help control their cystic fibrosis. At this “First Dose Party,” the Bakers were surrounded by hundreds of family and friends that helped make this special drug possible.
On Saturday, March 18, 2017, an army of dedicated supporters from Vermont team up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) for the 3rd Annual ShamRockin’ for a Cure VT event at The Abbey Restaurant in Sheldon, VT.
ShamRockin’ for a Cure VT is a premier party with a purpose that boasts food, live music, a dance floor, an incredible silent auction and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities up for grabs in the live auction.
The brainchild of close family friends of the Bakers, ShamRockin’ for a Cure Atlanta began as a close-knit, grassroots fundraising event that brought friends together to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day to “eat, drink, and help cure cystic fibrosis.” In its first year, the party of 150 guests raised just over $8,500 for CFF.
Within the last two years, ShamRockin’ for a Cure VT brought the movers and shakers of Franklin County Vermont to the table and sold out The Abbey Restaurant with more than 200+ guests, corporate sponsors and raised over $60,000. With so many sponsors again this year, they were able to raise $34,400 this year alone. That’s a total of $94,400 in 3 years!
This event would not be possible without the help of sponsors and those who give donations, whether it be a monetary donation or an item to auction off.
