Save the Date for the 2016 Emerald Eve!


Created as a tribute to our sister-in-law’s enduring spirit and determination, The Donna M. Crandall Memorial Foundation has raised over $2 million over the past 15 years. Our mission remains simple: to positively impact the lives of those affected by Cystic Fibrosis (CF). To that end, this year $100,000 was allocated to help local families battling this challenging disease and the 1,600th gift bag was delivered to an in-patient at Albany Medical Center. Your generous support makes it possible for The Foundation to make a significant difference in many lives while honoring our promise to Donna that she will never be forgotten.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited, chronic disease affecting 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucous that clogs the lungs and pancreas, leading to life-threatening infections and preventing the body from digesting food and its nutrients. In the 1950s, few CF children lived to attend elementary school. Today, the predicted median age of survival for a person with CF is 37.

The Donna M. Crandall Memorial Foundation cordially invites you to enjoy an evening of elegant carving stations and spirits in a beautiful setting.

The 16th Annual Emerald Even will be held Friday, December 2nd, 2016 from  7–11PM  at the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs, New York
