2014 Make CF History Charity Classic will honor "CF Champions"

Each year, the organizing committee of the Make CF History Charity Classic looks for ways to further our purpose in raising awareness (and funds) for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Last year we were inspired by Team Colin, whose Team Captain Steve Lopez entered his team in honor of Colin Mong.  Colin is a CF patient and is the son of a colleague of Steve's.  Having Colin with us last year, and having a team with his namesake win the tournament, brought to light what our event weekend is truly all about.

And with that, inspired by Colin and Team Colin, the 2014 Make CF History Charity Classic will be honoring 14 "CF Champions" throughout the weekend.  Each team will be playing for and dedicating their tournament to a CF patient - who we will be referring to as our "CF Champions".  Each "CF Champion" will be a part of the pre-tournament team photos, as well as a ceremonial puck drop on Sunday before the play-out games to end the event.  

In the weeks leading up to the event, we will be posting spotlight posts on each of our "Champions" so you can get to know them and their story, and see how meaningful it is to have them as an integral part of our event.
