CCF raises $258,900 for Cystic Fibrosis research and services
The Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball 2012 finished off a busy year of fundraising with a bang and a bit of glamour.

The proceeds of the annual Cocktail Party and Bingo for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis, together with other fundraisers held throughout the year, combined for an amazing total of $258,900.

The record profit has provided much needed funds to the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust for vital research projects and Cystic Fibrosis WA for patient support and assistance.

The 2012 Ball was held on October 20, started with an explosion of noise with Tetrafide Percussion opening the ball, followed by the dancing action of danceXpress.

Master of Ceremonies Lachy Reid led the guests in a countdown to zero when 850 streamers burst into the air. Combining with the release of hundreds of balloons, the party had begun.

The Governor of Western Australia, His Excellency Malcolm McCusker and Deputy Premier, Dr Kim Hames joined the 850 guests and took part in a wonderful night of dancing and fundraising. 

It was a night to remember with the 10 year fundraising total reaching more than $1,000,000. 

The 10th Grand Ball for Cystic Fibrosis in 2012 was also the first under the new incorporated charity, Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Inc. 

The 2013 Grand Ball will move to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre for another night to remember in 2013.

​The first Christmas in July funtion was a huge success and Emma, Martin, Sara, Lee, Paul, Shirley, Dwight and Tatjana, together with their many helpers on the night could not have hoped for a better result.

All the profit raised from the Christmas in July function will be sent to the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust on behalf of Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Inc.

Donate Life Week 2014
DonateLife Week is Australia's national awareness week to promote organ and tissue donation. In 2014, DonateLife Week was held from Sunday 23 February to Sunday 2 March 2014. DonateLife Week is a key part of the Australian Government's national reform programme to increase organ and tissue donation for transplantation and is led by the Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA).  

Why is this important? Organ and tissue donation saves lives. One donor can transform the lives of up to 10 people and significantly improve the lives of many more. People of any age regardless of gender, ethnicity or religion may one day need a life-transforming or life-saving transplant. Currently around 1,500 people are on Australian organ transplant waiting lists at any one time.

This DonateLife Week encouraged us all to have a chat with your loved ones so they know your donation decision. It's a chat that could one day save lives!!

Family and Friends Cocktail Party for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis
On Saturday 15 March 2014, two amazing families came together to host the Family and Friends Cocktail Party for Conquer Cystic Fibrosis (CCF). This was the third cocktail party they have organised with all proceeds from each event being donated to CCF.

The Family and Friends Cocktail Party is organised bi-annually by two amazing families, the Zaccaria’s (Vicki, Mike, Jayde and Kristie) and the Gavranich’s (Ross and Tara) at the Zaccaria’s Woodvale home. These amazing people open their homes and their hearts to help us raise money for CF research. This year the cocktail party raised and incredible $32,259.70.  

These two wonderful families originally decided to organise the cocktail party after being outbid on a cocktail party during a live auction at a previous Capel Vale Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Grand Ball. Although they missed out on the auction item they decided to come together to arrange their own event to support CCF. Since then they have raised a staggering $86,791.65 for CF research.

CCF could not achieve our fundraising goals without the generosity of people like the Zaccaria and Gavranich families. These families are a wonderful example of how people can make a real difference to the lives of CF sufferers by supporting CCF.  

There are many ways that you too can support CCF. Why not host your own cocktail party, a fancy dress dinner, office morning tea, crazy hair days at school, running a marathon, swimming to Rottnest... The possibilities are endless!   

Email us your fundraising ideas and we will do all that we can to help you make your event as successful as the Family and Friends Cocktail Party.

CCF raises $371,383.97 profit for research and CFWA
In January 2016 we received a bequest from the Will of Marjorie Gibson in the very generous amount of $20,000. Marjorie and her husband, Lawrence, had 2 children with Cystic Fibrosis.  

Eleanor died in 1953 at the age of 19 months and her sister, Gwenda, passed away aged 12 in 1972.  Gwenda was diagnosed at 6 months old and, whilst Eleanor was not officially diagnosed, her symptoms were very similar to Gwenda's.

Marjorie recently passed away at the age of 96 and she had always hoped that a cure would be found for Cystic Fibrosis.  We, too, hope that Marjorie's wish will be fulfilled and her bequest of $20,000 will be put to good use to help fund research into finding a cure for CF. Thank You Marjorie.
In loving memory of Marjorie Gibson
