The Stanley Richard Foundation, along with Renaissance The Studio, hosted the 3rd annual “Winter White” benefit of the year, Breathe WHITE for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Held at the opulent Raven & the Peach in Fair Haven, on behalf of “Stanley.” a 13yr old Holmdel boy living with Cystic Fibrosis, the event’s theme was ‘Breathe WHITE’, symbolizing white lungs and hope. Family, friends, and the community all came together in their winter white cocktail attire to make an impact in both awareness about and research regarding CF. Guests enjoyed live musical entertainment and dancing from Extravagent Entertainment, a caviar vodka ice bar, fine dining by Chef Rob and Julie, raffles, and silent auctions.
Cystic Fibrosis is a disease that affects the lungs, pancreas, and other organs, and leads to life-threatening lung infections. 30,000 children and young adults are living with the degenerating disease, and at the moment, there is no cure. Stanley’s family has been working side by side with the CF Foundation since his birth 13 years ago (he is the poster child for the Foundation, and, along with Lonnie Quinn & CBS, plays a key role in its awareness campaign).
