Casey & Devoti, a St. Louis-based law firm, is pleased to announce that earlier this year Partner Matthew J. Devoti was named President-Elect of the Gateway Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Board of Directors.
Matt Devoti will serve as president-elect for the remainder of this year and assume the role of president in 2017. He is thrilled to continue cultivating the mission of Gateway CFF – which is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatments, and ensuring access to high quality, specialized care.
With family members afflicted with cystic fibrosis, Matt Devoti has been dedicated to supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and its local chapter, the Gateway Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for many years. In 2013, Matt was asked to join the foundation’s board of directors; and for the past two years he has co-hosted the annual Wine Opener fundraiser, which raises about $70,000 annually. This year’s Wine Opener is set for September 17th and will be held in Ross Hall on the campus of CBC High School. Again this year, Matt will co-host and Casey & Devoti will be a corporate sponsor of the event.
