ShamRockin' for a Cure is BACK and better than ever for 2015!
Over the past six years, ShamRockin' for a Cure has hosted the definitive St. Patty' Day Celebration in North Fulton. Thousands have danced, feasted, and partied in festive green year after year at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. At ShamRockin' you'll dine on the best of the best among dozens of restaurants, drink from a cup that never empties, dance to music that moves you and shop among a special auction collection for a rare item or a souvenir! With the launch of our 2015 party already in the works - there's no telling what we'll add this year - but you can be sure it will be HUGE!
But this isn't just any ol' party. It's a party with a PURPOSE. Our mantra is "eat, drink and cure cystic fibrosis." With each year we're getting closer to our goal and have already raised close to $850,000 to help fight the disease, improve
the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure. Each year, the ShamRockin’ committee enlists the support of corporate and individual donors to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation “add tomorrows” for the over 30,000 individuals living with cystic fibrosis. Let’s join together to save lives... even if it takes all night!

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has unrestricted financial reserves of about 15 times its budgeted annual expenses, following a one-time royalty sale in 2014. These funds, along with the public’s continuing support, are needed to help accelerate our efforts to pursue a lifelong cure for this fatal disease, develop lifesaving new therapies and help all people with CF live full, productive lives.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON ATTENDANCE AT FOUNDATION EVENTS:
To reduce the risk of getting and spreading germs at CF Foundation-sponsored events, we ask that everyone follow basic best practices by regularly cleaning your hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand gel, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your inner elbow and maintaining a safe 6-foot distance from anyone with a cold or infection. Medical evidence shows that germs may spread among people with CF through direct and indirect contact as well as through droplets that travel short distances when a person coughs or sneezes. These germs can lead to worsening symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To further help reduce the risk of cross-infection, the Foundation’s attendance policy recommends that all people with CF maintain a safe 6-foot distance from each other at all times while attending an outdoor Foundation-sponsored event.
