Second Annual Friends of Elizabeth Nash Foundation Dinner pl

JOHNSBURG On Sunday, April 1, friends of the Elizabeth Nash Foundation will host a German dinner at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek. Social hour with music and song by Steve Murphy will start at 3 p.m., and dinner music will be provided by Frank Conti commencing at 4 p.m. Ann and Jim Nash lived in North Creek and then the Glens Falls area with their children, Patrick, Elizabeth and Christine. Jim was president and CEO of Barton Mines and Ann was a math professor at Adirondack Community College. Elizabeth, their oldest daughter, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of three. One would never have known she had a disability. She died at the age of 33, but she never gave up her dreams. She set and accomplished many significant goals in her shortened lifetime: a Ph.D. in molecular genetics, CF research scientist, Chair of the Research Advisory Committee of the Cystic Fibroses Research Institute of Mountain View, Calif., published in scientific journals, holder of three patents in the use of robotics in genetic research and mentor for youth with CF, to name a few. Her vision and dreams continue to live through the Elizabeth Nash Foundation. The Foundation was established in 2003 by Liz's family and friends as a formal tribute to her spirit of giving and to continue her fight against cystic fibrosis. The Foundation supports causes that reflect Liz's values and interests with a focus on three areas: research, education support and patient support. Help celebrate the Nash family and give to the ENF fund on April 1. Suggested donation is $50 per couple. Reservations will be greatly appreciated as space is limited. Call Nancy Beaudin at 251-2240.
