As you dive into a 4 course meal you will be highly entertained by our surprise special guest comedian and actor Bret Ernst, and the music of the talented Pilot Touhill as they perform live. All proceeds will be donated to THE BREATHE LIKE A BOSS FOUNDATION which helps people with Respiratory ailments such as Cystic Fibrosis as well as Post Transplant patients, by financially assisting them with their choice of fitness programs, extra curricular activities, or exercise equipment for the approved applicants home.

Why should you sponsor?
1. Brand Awareness:
We will happily share with the attendees our gratitude for your sponsorship by promoting your company. You will be able to introduce your product or service at our event as well if applicable. Not to mention, you will also be reaching a new target audience.
2. Opportunity to give attendees a taste or sample of what you have to offer:
Bringing samples to our event as giveaways can be a great way to capture attention from attendees. By sharing a sample or trial offer of your product, you engage attendees and increase your chances of turning them into new customers. We would also be happy to have you donate a product, gift certificate, or an item for silent auction so the attendees can see what you have to offer.
3. Lead Generation and New Contacts
We would also be happy to allow you to donate a product as a raffle prize to get their info. We can have everyone place their business cards and email addresses in exchange for a chance to win a great prize or promotional item giveaways that you may have to offer as well.
4. Social responsibility- KARMA
The last, but not least, sometimes it isn't always just about the buck. Instead, sponsoring and helping our cause will align your brand to a cause or mission their customers are passionate about. Let the world know that you care about people who have Cystic Fibrosis, COPD, Transplant, and other Respiratory Ailments and their community. I truly believe in Karma. When you do something good to help others, the world will pay it back.
Nick Di Brizzi
My name is Nick Di Brizzi Jr I was born and raised in Chicago, Il in 1981. I was born with Cystic Fibrosis and am a double lung transplant survivor. As a child and an adult my brothers and I trained in Martial Arts and boxing- Tai Kwon Do- Boxing- Muay Thai. I am currently mentoring many pre-transplant patients and have also given numerous speeches at events and classes for both Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Make A Wish Foundation. I am Make A Wish Ambassador and in May of 2016 I gave a speech to over 1000 people at Navy Pier in Chicago were we raised over 2 million dollars for Make A Wish. We raised over $500,000 after my speech within one hour and half. I have also spoke at Cystic Fibrosis events and different Martial Arts classes. I am also very experienced in sales and have incredible people skills. I have been a licensed realtor for over 13 years with Rodeo Realty. I also managed a restaurant for a couple years. Between these jobs and experiences I have become very good at dealing with people, legal contracts, and helping and servicing individuals. I also took Improv classes at Second City Chicago and have been an actor part time for over 15 years. Acting has given me experience behind the camera and also allowed me to feel confident in speaking in front of people in an articulate and often times entertaining way. On October 17th, 2015 I received a double lung transplant at Stanford hospital. I have since dedicated my life to helping others by mentoring other pre-transplant patients. I have also became a UNOS (United Network or Organ Sharing) ambassador and am raising awareness about the importance of being an Organ Donor. I also produced my own documentary called Fight Like A Boss which followed my journey to receiving new lungs.
