CFF raises $150K at Single Greatest Night

The Single Greatest Night, which celebrated its 13th year, event raised $150,000 for the Cystic Fibrosiscff Foundation, putting the event’s total amount raised to-date at more than $1 million. The event, presented by Harrell & Harrell, P.A., and Southeast Spine & Rehabilitation, honored Jacksonville’s finest singles at a black-tie gala at Sawgrass Golf Resort and Spa.

 “It is such an accomplishment to have raised more than $1 million for cystic fibrosis research and I want to congratulate our honorees in 2009 for their hard work and dedication,” said Liza Wrobel, director of special events for the foundation. “All the money raised will benefit the foundation and support ongoing research to find a cure for this disease that affects approximately 30,000 people in the U.S.”

The Single Greatest Night event honors exceptional single men and women who have exemplified leadership qualities, are active in volunteer roles, and have excelled in the Jacksonville business community. Each honoree committed to raising a minimum of $1,500 for continued cystic fibrosis research and programs.

More than 25 honorees were recognized during the event for their support to the foundation. The top individual fundraisers were first place Candace Monroe from Family Support Services of North Florida; second place Kimberly Harrell from Harrell & Harrell, P.A.; and third place Suzie Hutto from CSX Transportation. A silent auction and prize drawing of a 42-inch flat-screen television also brought in additional funds. Casey Black of WJXT-TV Channel 4 and Cole Pepper emceed the black-tie gala. Guests enjoyed live music by Don’t Tell Anne.
