The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will host its 16th annual Guys & Dolls Auction and Gala next month. The event taps influential young professionals to raise awareness and funds in the name of a child with CF. This year there are 19 men and women dubbed “guys & dolls” who will auction themselves off along their own curated prize package at the black tie event on February 20.

Leading up to the big night, participants are hosting their own mini-fundraisers all over town and this translates into a bunch of parties, fitness competitions, dance classes and even a billiards tournament for the rest of us.
