OUR MISSION


The committee of Wishes & Dreams for Cystic Fibrosis is comprised of CF Families, caregivers, friends and families of CF with the mission of raising awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis research. Wishes & Dreams was started 20 years ago as a beef/beer style event by Anne Mullins and other CF families. Their initial ideas of friends, families and local businesses coming together to help raise funds for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has blossomed to a Semi Formal large scale Dinner/Dance but has remained true to it’s roots. Wishes and Dreams was started and is proud to continue on as a family event. It is s a night for people who deal with CF on a daily basis to come together and have a good time for an amazing cause.


The chair persons are Kim and Kevin Galie who have a 16 year old daughter, Vicki, with Cystic Fibrosis. They have been chairing Wishes & Dreams for the past 10 years. They know the daily struggles of managing a life long disease while trying to balance a full life of work, business, family and charity. The committee that puts together Wishes and Dreams is comprised of other CF families such as the Maier, Black, Chrest, Geiger, Konowal and Randles families as well friends of the CF community and the Galie’s Family and Loved ones. Wishes & Dreams is truly a labor of love and would not be possible without these amazing people:
