In early 2015, a small group of parents who didn’t know each other particularly well, decided to meet over a cold beer at a local brewery in Louisville, KY. The one thing we had in common... kids battling cystic fibrosis. That night the Klausings (Luke 8 years old at the time), the Foushees (Alex 2 years old at the time) and the Sweeneys (Samuel 8 months old at the time) decided to work tirelessly to rally their city to join the fight to save their kids and beat CF once and for all.
And CRAFT was born...
We knew that in order to tap into the heart of this city, we had to design an event that embodied the very best of what Louisville has to offer. It didn’t take us long to realize that all of the pieces to make a great event already existed right here: the pizza, the beer, the people and a whole lot of asks.
What started as a small group of dedicated parents has grown into a small army of friends, family, businesses and even local government. Together, for one night each year, we’re going to bring it all together to throw the best party this town has ever seen, raise some serious dollars to battle CF and celebrate another year of Louisville’s drive towards a cure.
Together, we’ll see the day that CF stands for Cure Found!
