It has been my pleasure to be the honorary chairman of the AT&T JEB BUSH Florida Classic for the past 18 years, and I am pleased to serve in that position once again. Thanks to our many generous sponsors and participants, this very special event has netted a total of more than $6 million for the research and care programs of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The 18th annual AT&T JEB BUSH Florida Classic – Golf, Fishing, Beach Bash and Gala will be held November 21 - November 23, 2013 in Fort Lauderdale. This wonderful, multi-day event features golf and fishing tournaments and social functions, all of which benefit the CF Foundation, an organization that I am very proud to support.
The Foundation is one of the most cost-efficient and innovative health charities in the country, with nearly 90 cents of every dollar of revenue available for investment in Foundation-supported programs. In addition, the Foundation invests more money in drug discovery and development than any other disease foundation in the country.
With your support, this year’s event promises to be the best yet. I hope you will join me and help make a difference in the lives of everyone with CF. Working together, we can truly add tomorrows every day!
