Our own Drew Pond, CPA, Manager in our Rochester office, will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) at a special event on October 3, recognizing outstanding young professionals in the Rochester area. The Rochester’s Finest initiative honors a select group of young professionals for their success, leadership and commitment to making a difference in their community.

These remarkable young professionals will be recognized and supported by the Rochester area chapter and local partners as they strive to achieve excellence in all that they do. Throughout the campaign, CFF will celebrate their philanthropic accomplishments as they work to fundraise and create awareness for the organization. The recipients of the distinction will also be encouraged to maintain their concern for their community and continue their philanthropic efforts throughout their professional careers.

Drew joins the following young professionals being honored with this distinction:


In accepting this distinction, Drew has committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).

“As part of this program I have already attended an event, met this year’s other honorees and taken a tour of our local CF Pediatric Clinic at Rochester’s Strong Memorial and Golisano Children’s Hospital. Additionally, I will be participating in a series of networking and leadership development seminars in August and September,” said Drew.

We invite those interested in supporting CFF to help Drew raise funds for this worthy cause by making a donation which will be used to help support vital CF research, and medical and education programs.  For more information or to make a donation please use the following link: https://finest.cff.org/andrew-ponds-finest (feel free to like it or tweet it as well!)
