Westchester/Fairfield YPLC members at the
2013 Cruise to Cure

Strike OUT Cystic Fibrosis was created in 2011 in memory of Aaron Rossman, who lost his battle to cystic fibrosis on November 20, 2010. The first two events combined raised over $117,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This year the Westchester/Fairfield YPLC is honored to host the event which will take place on June 14, 2014 at Pelham Memorial High School in Pelham, NY.  If you are interested in attending, please visit http://westchester.cff.org/yplc for more information.

The 2nd Annual Cruise to Cure will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014. Young professionals from the greater NY metropolitan area will come together for an all-inclusive night out on The Klondike which sets sail out of New Rochelle, NY at 7:00PM.  Last year, the Cruise was a complete hit and was able to raise just under $30,000 for the Foundation. Tickets are currently on sale for $85 and can be purchased at http://westchester.cff.org/yplc.
