Description

Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation “Spotlighting” Inflammatory Bowel Diseases The Maryland Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America is hosting our third annual Spotlight Dinner and Auction on Friday, November 16, 2012 at the American Visionary Arts Museum. “Spotlight is an exciting event that pays tribute to our brave friends, relatives and colleagues battling Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, while raising money to support our mission of finding cures for these debilitating diseases,” says Spotlight Chair, Jason Fruman. “Our event’s elegant combination of fabulous food and cocktails, stimulating conversation, good company, priceless auction packages, and a great cause will create an evening to remember.” The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic digestive disorders of the intestines. These illnesses are collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases, or IBD, because many of their symptoms and complications are similar. It is estimated that some 1.4 million Americans suffer from IBD, with approximately 30,000 new cases diagnosed each year. “While IBD impacts millions of people worldwide, it’s not a disease that people talk about often,” says CCFA Mid-Atlantic Regional Director, Allison Coffey. “So many patients suffer in silence, but the CCFA is changing that by bringing the IBD community together publicly. The money we raise supports patient programs, enhances professional education efforts, and propels critical research for a cure”. Founded in 1967, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America is the leading non-profit, volunteer-driven organization. Today, the organization has grown to 40 local chapters, with more than $160 million raised and invested in research for a cure. This funding has enabled many groundbreaking treatments, improved the quality of care for people with these conditions, and brought the light of hope to countless lives. Additionally, the CCFA ranks third among leading health nonprofits in the percentage of expense devoted to research toward a cure, with more than 81 cents of every dollar the Foundation spends going to mission-critical programs. The Foundation consistently meets the standards of organizations that monitor charities, including the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance (www.give.org) and the American Institute of Philanthropy (www.charitywatch.org).
