This is an annual crafting retreat to raise money for the non-profit organization, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in hopes that one day soon CF will stand for Cure Found!

 

The following details will introduce you to our crop and why we do what we do. Scrapping for a Cure events are a little different from your typical crops. ALL proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. ALL workers are volunteers who donate their time, money, and energy to the success of these events. The success of the event also rests with our amazing sponsors. We rely heavily on donations for our event food, supplies, door prizes, auction items, and participant gifts. Ultimately the success of our fundraising is because of our generous participants. We have raised over $75,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation over the past 10 years because of the dedication and generosity of everyone that supports our events.

Scrapping for a Cure's Mission is to create HOPE for those with Cystic Fibrosis through creative memory keeping. All of our proceeds go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help to develop new medical treatments and to find a cure for CF.
