Since its founding in 1967, the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation (CCFA) has sought the cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. The National Institutes of Health commended the CCFA for its work "uniting the research community and strengthening IBD research." The CCFA established the precedent for research in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) by forming its own scientific journal and educational symposiums and funding cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions. It has helped discover chromosomal regions with IBD-related genes and NOD2, the first gene for Crohn’s disease.
In addition to medical research, the CCFA runs a wide range of educational programs and support services to improve the quality of life for people affected by IBD. With awareness campaigns, webcasts, and periodicals, such as Take Charge and Under the Microscope, the organization reaches out to more than one million patients and caregivers. Nationwide chapters further this work by conducting more than 300 support groups for patients and summer camps for children every year.
The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the cha-cha. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba.

When Chris Evert played tennis professionally, she was a champion. Ranked No. 1 in the world for seven years, she won at least one Grand Slam singles title per year for 13 years straight—setting a record for men's and women's players alike. Evert may have retired in 1989, but she's still a champion. Now it's for Chris Evert Charities, dedicated to combating drug abuse and child neglect. At Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic, Evert raises money for these organizations with a star-studded weekend of tennis.
The core of the weekend? Games, of course, between celebrities from the tennis world and beyond. Past players have included Andy Roddick, Olivia Newton-John, Matthew Perry, and more. To round out the event, there's a poolside cocktail party as well as
a gala with dinner, dancing, and a silent auction.
