To our families and friends of Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation,

The Coronavirus outbreak has affected each of us in many ways.  That being stated, the health and well-being of all families affected by Cystic Fibrosis, as well as those who support the visions and goals of the Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation (CDBF) is one of the highest priorities of our organization.  Due to this outbreak, it is with deep regret that we determine it necessary to cancel the Night of Hope benefit auction that was scheduled for March 28th.

We are very dedicated to helping prevent and slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus in our community. We will continue to work & ensure we are here to help and bring hope to those we serve at CDBF.  

We are truly going to miss this annual in-person gathering with all of our families, friends, and supporters.  We also wish to send the message that now, more than ever, we will need your support.   

In answer to the loss of the March 28th Night of Hope, we are excited to share that we are planning for two alternate exciting events this year!  Please stay tuned for information about our upcoming on-line auction in May during Cystic Fibrosis Month.   

We’re also working on a very fun fall event, details on that coming soon!

Thank you to all who have supported CDBF generously over many years.  This Foundation has grown and will continue to grow and help more people who live with Cystic Fibrosis because of friends like you.  

If you already purchased a table or a ticket to our Night of Hope Benefit Auction, you can either donate the cost of that to CDBF or ask for a refund.  Please let our Executive Director Pam Western know what you prefer to do at  

You are all in our hearts and minds at this time.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns you might have.  

Thank you for being a part of Team Cody!

P.S The auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  We need your support now more than ever.  Please give a gift today at
