Chillin' & Grillin' for a Cure
Join us as we work hard to raise money to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis at the annual Chillin' & Grillin' for a Cure on Saturday Sept. 15 from 2-7pm in Frankfort. The C&G is an event similar to a block-party loaded with activities for the both the kids and adults. Relax and enjoy the event as your kids play games, get their face-painted and explore a fire truck while you check out the auctions, play bags and enjoy some music! Food and drinks are included with your ticket as well as the tastings of the fabulous chefs! $20 per person ages 3+ with a $75 family rate available until the week before the event. After 9/8, tickets are $25 each.
Are you interested in testing your culinary skills as a chef? Each year, we have a themed cooking and baking competition. All details can be found here. Don't be shy, this is a fun and friendly competition with prizes awarded to the winners. Register today to be a chef - deadline to be in the competition is Sept 8.
Share the Facebook invite with your family and friends. The more the merrier and email us if you would like to sponsor the event this year.
Update on Dean
Last week we took Dean for his annual labs, which are necessary to stay on top of the complications of Cystic Fibrosis. When he was initially diagnosed, we went through a lot of learning and emotions in dealing with everything CF. We adjusted but Dean was still a tiny babe. As he gets older, he understands more and begins to process some of the emotions and thoughts and feelings that we have already dealt with. It's not fair, it's not fun and it's not easy but he is brave and strong and we are so proud of how he acts and deals with the information he learns. We will have the results Tuesday when he goes for his clinic and pray that there is nothing negative brewing in him.
