Thursday night, Chattanoogans did their part to uncork the cure for a deadly disease...
And we raised $35,000!
It was for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's fourth annual Three Blind Wines.
It pairs wine tasting with working to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.
The event allows patrons to taste from bottles whose labels have been covered up, and then vote for their favorite red and white.
90 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis.
Ginger Birnbaum is not only a member of the Three Blind Wines committee. She's the mother of a son with CF. She said, "There is no cure. But right now we are on top of a medicine that goes straight to the root cause of Cystic fibrosis. Straight to that cell. It's not for every patient, only four percent of patients, so we still have 96% that are waiting on that drug to change their lives. So now's the time."
People also got the chance to bid on items in both live and silent auctions.
