The Orange County chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is hosting a Black and Orange Ball at the Crowne Plaza Anaheim Resort. The Halloween Ball, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 6:00 p.m., will feature a costume party, dinner and auction benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

In addition to the festivities, the event will spotlight Noelle Kirby as the inspirational guest speaker. The admirable 33-year-old from Mission Viejo lives with Cystic Fibrosis, a chronic disease inherited from a defective gene that damages the lungs and digestive system. Because of the advances in medications, care and research, life expectancy and quality of life for the children and young adults suffering from Cystic Fibrosis has greatly improved. Kirby has battled the chronic disease for years, and the foundation says her enthusiasm inspires parents and children to continue fighting the disease and to never lose sight of their dreams.

“We are so excited for the upcoming Black & Orange Ball...This year is going to be the biggest and the best yet, and we are lucky to have Noelle Kirby, our speaker and CF Ambassador, with us again this year,” said Jim and Tamara Christian, the event chairs. “It’s going to be a great night, we are so appreciative of all the support that we’ve gotten so far and we are looking forward to hitting our goal and raising $100,000.”

The Black and Orange Ball tickets are $150 per person and all proceeds will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. For more information regarding the festivities, call the Orange County office of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at (714)938-1393.
