Welcome to Weiner Roast 2021
A Virtual Fundraiser with Online Silent Auction
Benefitting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

June 26, 2021


Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease that causes chronic, life-threatening lung infections. For our family, finding a cure for CF is personal  -- our two adult children, Matthew and Melissa, are CF patients.

When our kids were diagnosed in 1997, most patients simply did not survive to adulthood. Because of the research funded by the CF Foundation, and your donations over the past 23 years, Matt and Melissa have each graduated from college and started their lives as young working adults. This is incredible progress, but we simply will not be satisfied until we vanquish this disease. You can help us fight CF right now by making an online credit card donation. Just click on the DONATE button.
 
For the last 10 years, Weiner Roast has been an in-person event, a family cookout in our backyard, accompanied by a large silent auction. 100% of the money raised at Weiner Roast is donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Metro DC Chapter.
 
Due to the pandemic, Weiner Roast 2020 was held as a virtual event  -- and amazingly we still raised over $53,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation! Since social distancing is still necessary, we are doing a virtual event again for 2021. So, we are pleased to announce:

A Virtual Event with Online Silent Auction

To build our silent auction, Janet usually solicits donated items from restaurants and businesses. This year because businesses are experiencing hard times we are proposing a new twist, and we are hoping you can help --  Please consider donating an auction item to us!  It can be as simple as buying a gift card to your favorite restaurant or store.  Your purchase will help a local business and the CF Foundation, and you will get a tax deduction for the items you donate. If you are interested in this new option, donating an auction item is easy! Just click on the “Donate an Auction Item” button above -- and you will be taken to our donation form and instructions.  We welcome donations of all new merchandise, art and crafted items, a week or weekend at a vacation home, bottles of wine or spirits, or any other creative ideas you may have.

If you are interested in checking out our Silent Auction, clicking on the VIEW OUR SILENT AUCTION BUTTON will take you to our Virtual Auction website, where you can browse and bid from the comfort of your couch in your PJs if you like!
  Bidding begins at noon on June 18 and closes at 5 pm on June 26.  

On behalf of our children and all those with cystic fibrosis, thank you for your consideration!

Janet & Harvey Weiner
