Casey & Devoti has been a strong supporter of the Gateway Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for many years. This is the second year Partner Matt Devoti, a Gateway CFF Board Member, will serve as ‘Co-Host’ of the event. Last year the event drew a crowd of nearly 400 people and raised almost $70,000 for the foundation.
Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. The Gateway Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a fundraising arm, whose purpose is to advance fundraising efforts, research, and community awareness for children and adults living with Cystic Fibrosis in the St. Louis area.
