BELLEVUE, Wash., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wallick & Volk Mortgage released details today of their contribution to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which held their 30th Annual Breath of Life Gala on November 9th at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.
Jeff McGinnis (MLO# 279369 | CL# 142878) is a Sr. Loan Officer at Wallick & Volk. McGinnis presented a $4,000 check to Allie DeLong of CFF on behalf of Wallick & Volk's Bellevue Branch. McGinnis explains, "The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is doing outstanding work to pursue a cure for this chronic disease, we are thrilled to support their efforts."
According to their website, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been the "driving force" behind the pursuit of a cure since 1955. Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects about 30,000 children and adults in the United States. About 1,000 new cases of CF are diagnosed each year and more than 70% of patients are diagnosed by the age of two. Advances in research and medical treatments have extended the life expectancy of people with CF to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. In the 1950s very few children survived long enough to attend school.
The Annual Breath of Life Gala & Auction is a black-tie dinner and auction which includes a gourmet dinner, entertainment and a raffle. This year's 30th Anniversary event raised 1.4 million dollars to help benefit this dynamic foundation.
