To legendary watermen Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama, surfing recently has brought new meaning to their lives.<p>When the duo learned that surfing led to a treatment for cystic fibrosis (CF), they joined and soon became leaders within the surfing community to help raise funds for the disease that robs children and young adults of their youth, their health and eventually their lives before most of them reach their late 30s. In 2008, Laird and Dave enthusiastically became honorary chairmen of a very special fundraiser "Pipeline to a Cure." <p>Together with longtime sponsors BJ's Restaurants, LAcarGUY, Coast Benefit Consultants, Wahoo's Fish Taco, and American Airlines, CFF has raised more than $750,000 in just two short years. With no public funding, this significant amount of money from the private sector and individuals provides a tremendous and critical lifeline to the more than 70,000 children around the world with CF.Other surfers lending their support for the CF cause included Jeff Clark, Mickey Munoz, Jericho Poppler, Gavin Beschen, Kala Alexander, Michael Ho, Julian Wilson, Lisa Anderson, Sally Fitzgibbons, and Travis Mellem.<p> The Hyatt Regency<p>Huntington Beach, CA 92648<p>6:00PM- 11:00PM<p><p>Tickets: $350<p><p>Come out and support Cystic Fibrosis<br><br>More questions?

"Beyond Breathing" is currently being considered for a feature film.<br><p>Founder's Day at the Milton Library is a celebration of the founding of the Library in 1884 in memory of Sarah Hull Hallock. Each year, the Board of Trustees hosts Founder's Day in recognition of the long-standing commitment of the Library to reach out to the Milton community. <br><p> This event is free, open to the public, and all are welcome. <br><p> Reservations are not required, but appreciated. <br><p><b> Please call (845) 795-2200.</b> 2010-04-14 Wed, 14 Apr 2010 09:00:00 EST Margarete will be speaking at The Black & White Ball at the Ritz Carlton in Westchester, NY http://www.margaretecassalina.com/health_news/22/news.html <script type="text/javascript">var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?
