Past Events

The Living Breath Foundation has hosted a wide variety of events over the past 17 years.  Through these events, we raised awareness about Cystic Fibrosis and funded our financial aid and scholarship programs.  Take a look at some of the events we have held over the years.

The Shootout at Pasadera is a brand new LBF event introduced in 2021.  A 9-hole charity golf tournament which featured four professional golfers in a friendly competition to raise money for those living with Cystic Fibrosis.  Due to COVID precautions, activities other than the golf match itself were very limited.  We are excited to see where this event will take us in the future!

In October 2020, in place of our usual annual dinner event we held a virtual fundraising event called "Because of You".  The event included a virtual presentation as well as an online auction.  Thank you to everyone who participated and helped to make this event a success in the midst of such a difficult year!

For the past four years the Bay for Breath team has made the endurance testing paddle across the Monterey Bay, with the ultimate goal of raising money and awareness for those living with Cystic Fibrosis.   Leaving from Santa Cruz and arriving in Monterey, the journey across the bay is a staggering 28-mile paddle!  Go, padders!

Since our formation in 2008 "In a Garden of Sixty-Five Roses" has been our premier annual fundraising event.  Each year The Living Breath Foundation holds this wonderful and exciting gala event in which a great majority of our funds for the year are raised.  Dinner is accompanied by a cocktail hour, silent auction, talks and speeches from CFers, family members, and healthcare professionals, and an exciting live auction to end the night.

Every November the Living Breath Foundation Bowl is held on the central coast.  The game is a Junior College Bowl game featuring the Golden Coast Conference Champions and the Pacific 7 Conference Champions.  The purpose of the game is to help raise funds and awareness of Cystic Fibrosis as well as provide an exciting experience for the players and fans alike.

Mauli Ola BBQ 2011

BBQ Fundraiser was thrown by LBF benefiting the Mauli Ola Foundation

The Mauli Ola Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing hope and confidence to individuals living with Cystic Fibrosis as well as other genetic diseases.  The Living Breath Foundation donated all proceeds from this event to the Mauli Ola Foundation as well as invited the volunteers for a well-deserved party to relax and enjoy themselves after spending the day teaching young CFers how to surf!

Southern California Youth Football Camp run by The Living Breath Foundation

In 2010 The Living Breath Foundation teamed up with current Riverside Community College football head coach Tom Craft to put on the Air Craft Passing Camp.  The camp provided over 100 youth football players with a three day long football experience. The players learned football skills as well as invaluable life lessons from a team of exceptional coaches.  Due to logistics the camp was only held in 2010 but was considered a great success by the Living Breath Foundation.  The wonderful experience we received from the players and coaches lead us to begin putting on The Living Breath Foundation Bowl (a Junior College Bowl Game) the following year.​
