Cystic Fibrosis


October 24, 1999|By Sloane Brown

If Mom ever told you not to play while in your dress-up clothes, it was time to break the rule at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's "Play Ball." Some 625 guests, in their best bib and tucker, got to play in the exhibits at the Port Discovery Children's Museum.

Then it was time to take the trolley to the Baltimore Convention Center for dinner and more fun and games, including miniature golf and casino activities.

This crowd of players included event chairs Bruce and Su-zanne Hoffman; Josie Schaeffer, executive director of CFF Maryland Chapter; Kendel Ehrlich, chapter board president; Marie Henderson, president of Marie Henderson Enterprises; and Karen Patten, co-owner of Kali's Court restaurant.

"Play Ball" raised some $225,000 to fight cystic fibrosis.
