Each year Bluesfest, the performing artists and the very loyal and generous festival-goers continue to support the Cystic Fibrosis Guitar Raffle. 2020 will be the 24th consecutive year of the partnership between Cystic Fibrosis and Bluesfest Byron Bay thanks to the Festival Director and the Bluesfest team.
Over this time in excess of $655k has been raised for the Charity to fund medical and scientific genetic research as well as providing support, services and hope to those fighting this brutal disease for which there is still no cure for.
However, over the past three years, and for the first time ever three new medicines have been developed to treat some of the major causes of this life taking genetic condition. Australian researches are playing an important role in the worldwide effort to find a total cure and Bluesfest is proudly a big part of this.
Momentum with more improved next-generation drugs for treating the cause of this disease is increasing and will greatly improve the quality of life for all Cystic Fibrosis sufferers.
This year Byron Music the Raffle Prize sponsor will again be donating another three leading brand guitars which will be signed by many of the major performing artists of this year’s unbelievable line-up.
Say hello when you see the Cystic Fibrosis crew on site this year and dig deep to donate for this awesome prize and very worthy cause!
