The food tasting event, featuring some of New Hampshire’s best restaurants, gourmet food shops and bakeries, will take place Thursday, April 9 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at The Executive Court Banquet Facility in Manchester, NH.

Funds raised through this event have helped spur dramatic progress in the lives of those who have cystic fibrosis (CF). Fifty years ago, most children with CF did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
