When his son, Nicholas, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, Sal Capano became a dedicated and determined volunteer for the CF Foundation. He created the Care Today…Cure Tomorrow event and never missed an opportunity to educate the world about CF and recruit people to help in his quest to raise funds and find a cure for Nicholas and everyone else who battles the disease. Sal Capano passed away in 2007. In tribute, his wife Lauri and a group of Sal’s friends, affectionately known as “Sal’s Pals,” continued his “Care Today…Cure Tomorrow event.
Nine years ago, Lauri Capano, David Greenberg and Michael Rankin added a wine-tasting element to the dinner event, and it evolved into what is known today as "The Wine Opener. Sip...Savor...Cure!” On October 18, 2019, Event Chair Rene Stern invites everyone to come together and enjoy rich cuisines, fine wines and the opportunity to dance the night away. r.
WHAT IS CYSTIC FIBROSIS?
Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. In the US, more than 30,000 people are living with cystic fibrosis (more than 70,000 worldwide).
