Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis Fundraising Events Raise $280,000 for IPF
Date:10/29/2007

Events held in Chicago and Los Angeles provide foundation for new education

and research efforts to fight IPF

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis (CPF) is pleased to announce that two major fundraising events hosted in Chicago and Los Angeles have generated more than $280,000 in new funds to help those suffering from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a rare and deadly lung disease which affects more than 128,000 people in the U.S. The La Nuit de la Papillion (Night of the Butterfly) was held in the Old Town area of Chicago on Sept. 19, and the Butterfly Garden Party was hosted in a private residence in Malibu, Calif. on Sept. 30.

Both events were hosted by members of the Roney family, whose dedication to the cause has provided generous annual support for the CPF's important work in the IPF community. This year their events raised more than $280,000, and the family's efforts since 2003 continue to provide much-needed funding for the CPF's work with IPF patients and researchers.

"The success of these spectacular events speaks volumes for the commitment and compassion of our supporters to help those affected by this terrible disease," said Mark Shreve, chief executive officer of the CPF. "We are grateful to all of our supporters, and we are overwhelmed by the generosity of everyone involved. Their dedication reinforces the CPF's firm commitment to find treatments and ultimately a cure for IPF."

The funds will be used to further the education, awareness, and research efforts of the CPF, as it seeks answers to a disease that takes 40,000 lives every year and remains one of the few untreatable diseases affecting such a large population.

More than 150 guests at the Chicago event enjoyed the Bistro Margot restaurant with French cuisine as well as a silent auction that featured a trip for two to Paris, France and an Oxygen Lepton Electric Scooter. In Los Angeles, more than
