Shine up those shoes and pick up your dry cleaning – the 2010 Brewer’s Ball is just around the corner!  On Saturday, March 6th, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will sponsor the 6th Annual Brewer’s Ball event, to be held this year at the United States Chamber of Commerce.

The Brewer’s Ball offers more than 800 guests the opportunity to sample a variety of handcrafted ales and lagers from top microbreweries and brewpubs in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.  The evening will feature live entertainment as well as a silent auction, to raise both money and awareness for cystic fibrosis research.   The 2009 Brewer’s Ball was able to contribute 95 cents of every dollar raised available for investment in vital CF research, care and education programs.  By donating to Brewer’s Ball you know that your money is being spent in the most effective way possible – to save lives!

Individual tickets are on sale for $115 each, $40 of which is tax deductible.  Sponsorships are available, as well.  For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit or call the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation DC Chapter at (301) 657-8444.
