Denkers explained the very real connection to Life &Times in our recent interview. “The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is near and dear our hearts. We have identical twins, eight-year-old boys who have Cystic Fibrosis - a genetic disease that affects the entire body but mostly the lungs and digestive systems. Right now CF is not cur- able due to the genetic defects that cause the disease, but the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been work- ing  tirelessly funding new medica- tions and treatments with several in the pipeline that have the possibility of reversing some of the genetic that cause CF (there are over 1,800 dif- ferent defects in the CFTR gene that cause CF). ” Anyone interested in obtaining tick- ets should visit the Brewfest website athttp://www.lakeannabrewfest.com/ tickets/ or on their  Facebook event page. Denkers notes volunteers are the heart of the event and that more are needed to assist with pouring as well And Evolved Over The Past Four Years as working the front gate.
