Thank you for going "Behind the Mask" of cystic fibrosis at our 26th Annual Express Scripts Reach for a Star Gala at the Ritz-Carlton St. Louis. With your support, we raised over $400,000 to add tomorrows for those living with cystic fibrosis.
Congratulations to 2017 Alan A. and Edith L. Wolff Inspiration Award Recipients:
The Staenberg Family Foundation
At the gala we were honored to present the 2017 Alan A. and Edith L. Wolff Inspiration Award to Michael and Carol Staenberg on behalf of The Staenberg Family Foundation, a supporting foundation of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis. The Alan A. and Edith L. Wolff Inspriation Award honors the Saint Louis region's most active and inspiring community leaders and organizations who have made a difference in the local community through philanthropic involvement. The Gateway Chapter is honored to have Michael and Carol as our advocates in the fight for a cure for cystic fibrosis. Many thanks to their friends and colleagues who were there to support them while receiving this award!
Thank you to our CF Ambassador:
Another highlight of the evening was hearing from our CF Ambassador for the 2017 Gala: Jenna Bernstein. Only 14 years old, Jenna delivered a powerful speech reminding all of us in the room that it is "because of you" she is excited for the future.

Important Note on Attendance at Foundation Events:
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends inviting only one person with CF to attend the indoor portion of a Foundation-sponsored event at a specific time. For the outdoor portion, the Foundation recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times.
Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
