Emily’s Entourage wants to extend our best wishes for a very happy and healthy New Year to all of our incredible supporters! As we reflect back on 2012, it’s hard to absorb what an amazing year it was for EE.
On December 1st, we hosted our first-ever EE event, An Evening with Emily’s Entourage, to launch our second annual fundraising campaign and debut the new video. Material Culture generously donated their unbelievable space as the venue and Philly’s own Hope Cohen served as the emcee.
At the event, we debuted our new fundraising video, which can be viewed here. We also announced that for the second year in a row, an anonymous donor was generously matching funds raised before the new year.
With over 350 guests, An Evening with Emily’s Entourage was an amazing success! We raised over $48,000 at the event alone. We were floored by the support and the amazing energy in the room that night. We want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make it such a magical evening.
With momentum high, we worked tirelessly to spread CF awareness far and wide and raise as much funds as possible. We’re thrilled to say that the hard work seems to have paid off. This year’s campaign raised over $250,000 for CF research. That’s all because of the unbelievable generosity of YOU, the incredible entourage. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.
We are blown away by the love we have received and we cannot thank you enough for your unwavering support of EE. We are so excited to see what 2013 will bring, and we remain more determined than ever to continue fighting with all of our might until we achieve control or a cure for everyone with CF.
From all of us at EE, we wish you a happy, healthy and laughter-filled 2013!
