If you are looking for a great place to watch the #1 Clemson Tigers play football this Saturday that includes all the food and beverages you want, a chance to win silent auction items (including a football signed by the potential national champions) and help a great cause we have the place for you, the third annual Kickoff for a Cure. Doors will open at 2:30 and we’ll be there until the conclusion of the game.
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
This is the third annual kickoff for a cure to benefit the South Carolina chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The event is a tailgate themed, ticketed party on top of the 1 Main building that raises money to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. We have food and beverages provided by area restaurants including beer and wine. This is where food, football and philanthropy come together.
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.
