Event Highlights - CF Awareness Night at Citi Field

Inaugural Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Night at Citi Field!

On Wednesday, September 12th, the New York Mets partnered with the Chapter for the first Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Night. Volunteers, interns and staff gathered to offer information and resources about cystic fibrosis and the CF Foundation to Mets and Nationals fans. 

Prior to the first pitch, the Chapter was presented with the NY Mets “Spirit Award” in recognition of our continued support of the team and dedication to our cause. Chapter Executive Director Martine Denis, Board member Marc Cassalina with wife Margarete and son Eric, YPLC President Dr. Jason Price, Senior Development Director Susan Sugarman, supporters Gulbin Antapli and cousin Christopher, and Kathy and Charlie Lanzaro took to the field and received the award on behalf of the Foundation and all CF supporters. The turnout was fabulous --- 675 supporters came to the game and brought community awareness to the big field! Thank you to everyone who joined us and stay tuned for next season.
