The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosted its annual “Uncork the Cure” champagne tasting event at The Cannery to support their goal of finding a cure. In addition, the foundation honored Blaze Barsamian, Taylor Collins, Matt Eaton, Emily Egan, Juli Jelenko, Maureen Kennedy, Keith LeBlanc, Michelle Norwood, Sarah Peltier, Carly Plotkin, Christina Pohlmann, Lauren Ruello and Meredith Simoneaux, who went above and beyond to exceed their personal goals of each raising $3,000.

A VIP Patron Party preceded general admission. Patrons sipped champagne, shopped the auction and snapped photos in the photo booth.

The event featured food from some of New Orleans’ best restaurants, including Acme Oyster House, Catering D’Orleans, Copeland’s, First Class Catering, Katie’s Restaurant, La Thai, MeMe’s Bar & Grill, New Orleans Ice Cream, Royal Palm in Harvey and SWEGS.

Chip Wilson and The Style A’s provided musical entertainment.

The auction included prizes such as art, jewelry, golf, ski and fitness packages, restaurant and shopping gift cards, as well as staycation packages.

Approximately 300 patrons attended the event, which raised more than $40,000.
