Rock N Roses

Rock N' Roses will bring the Tampa Bay community together for an evening of live music, food and entertainment at the historic Italian Club in Ybor City to support a great cause - the fight against cystic fibrosis. Our 2017 Rock N’ Roses marks the renaissance of a similar event we hosted on a smaller scale six years ago, in Plant City.
Meet Tara (Parker) Illingworth. Tara has the same dream as the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation --- to find a cure for the disease she battles every day. Cystic fibrosis is a rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that affects the lungs, pancreas and other organs in the body and makes breathing difficult. Some people with the disease say it’s like breathing through a straw.
A tremendous amount of progress has been made since then. Research and drug development breakthroughs the past five years have led to transformational change in the way we treat CF, and help improve the quality of life for those who face a diagnosis. As a result of these efforts, for the first time ever, there are more adults living with CF than children – a testament to the hard work and persistence of the Foundation’s donors, volunteers and scientific community.
Making Cystic Fibrosis “CF” stand for “Cure Found” is our ultimate goal. To do that, we need your help. Tara and 33,000 others in our country are impacted by CF. Her dream has turned into a goal, and that goal…into an event. Please mark your calendars as we relaunch our popular “Rock n’ Roses” event this fall to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF).
Rock N’ Roses is sure to be a memorable evening, and great example of how our community can rally together for an incredible cause. Our success simply wouldn’t be possible without generous sponsorships and donations from companies like yours.
Please review the available sponsorship options and sign up today. We are grateful for your consideration.
