Spice Up Your Summer and Help Find a Cure for  Cystic Fibrosis

Spice Up Your Summer and Help Find a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis

When you enjoy one of  three refreshing yet zippy cocktails from our Cocktails for a Cure menu, we will donate to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. There is no cure but CF is a leader in the search for a cure for and supports a broad range of research initiatives to tackle the disease from all angles. Visit CF's website to learn more about cystic fibrosis and how your support can be life changing for those affected by it.

One person trying to make a difference is our Coca Cola rep, Natalie Blazevich. You guys may remember her as the cheerful face behind Don Julio here at the Inn. She was recognized as one of Pittsburgh's Fifty Finest by CF.  In appreciation of this honor Natalie is fundraising to help find a cure for CF. She approached us several weeks ago with the idea to put together a Summer cocktail menu as a fundraiser for a cure for cystic fibrosis. She asked her friends at Don Julio if they'd create the table tents to help us promote it. John and I thought it was a beautiful idea and so we were in!  All you have to do to help is enjoy one of these three cocktails. But, if you don't drink or these drinks aren't up your alley, you can donate directly.  The link is below.

When you purchase one of these three cocktails between now and the end of July, John and I will donate $2 to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in honor of Natalie's creative fundraising efforts.
