Staff Report

Choate Construction Company hosted its 13th annual Cars & ‘Q for the Cause fundraiser on Saturday, raising $505,065 for the Georgia Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This award-winning car show and party event is one of the CF Foundation’s top passion fundraising events each year, totaling $3.13 million in critical funds raised for life-saving research and treatments for people with CF. Choate Construction began supporting the cystic fibrosis cause when a close family friend of the company, Leann Ott, was diagnosed with the disorder as a toddler. 

At the time, the life expectancy was just 13 years old. As Choate grew, so did their passion for finding a cure for CF. Through this mission and their dedication, employee-owners at Choate have raised more than $6 million dollars to date in support of the CF Foundation. Their major fundraisers include Cars & ‘Q for the Cause, the XTREME Hike, and other passion projects under Choate’s Building Up philanthropic program. Thanks to the significant fundraising efforts around the country, the average life expectancy for people with CF is now in the 50’s, allowing CF Fighters the opportunity for a longer, more fulfilling life!
