For the Love of Marge
Join The Bonnell Foundation for our annual fundraising gala, For the Love of Marge, dedicated to memory of the late Margaret Carmona, Cystic Fibrosis patient and sister of our board member, Scott Carmona.
Margaret Carmona was a Cystic Fibrosis patient dedicated to assisting others. She served the Metro-Detroit chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation raising money to help in the battle against CF. For the Love of Marge was Margie’s idea to gather with friends and family in a wedding type environment and raise funds to help others. Margie lost her battle to the disease in 2006 but her dream now lives on with this family fun event that helps to warm the winter months. Started in 2007, this event showcases Margie’s spirit of love and friendship as we gather to have fun, enjoy each other’s company and raise funds for The Bonnell Foundation. The Bonnell Foundation continues to expand its outreach to Cystic Fibrosis families by doubling the number of Margaret Carmona academic scholarships, continuing its generous support of The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and dramatically increasing its Angel Fund which covers basic needs often not covered by other services. As we grow so does our ability to touch lives and families nationwide. We couldn’t do it without your help, thank you. Please join us in celebrating:

Because of health risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals with CF who have had confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia complex shall not attend events sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This policy is necessary because B. cepacia is contagious to individuals with CF. B. cepacia can be transmitted through casual contact or close proximity with infected individuals. B. cepacia infection in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may result in rapid decline in lung function, possibly leading to death. While this policy should reduce the risk of B. cepacia cross infection, there still might still be some individuals with B. cepacia in attendance. B. cepacia is not a known health risk to individuals without CF who are otherwise healthy.
