Crossing the Finish Line (CFL) hosted its sixth annual gala evening, "Beach Ball 2006" on January 21, 2006. Golden Globe nominee Maria Bello, a Norristown, Pennsylvania native, attended the VIP Reception preceding the gala. Guests were greeted by the tropical sounds of the Caribbean Steel Drum Band and enjoyed a variety of exquisite food choices and complimentary cocktails provided by Jack Francis Catering. This fun-filled event also featured a silent auction and a raffle for a trip to the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, as well as music provided by The Quake. Crossing the Finish Line is a nonprofit organization that provides young adult cancer patients (ages 24-50), its “sailors,” and their caregivers a "retreat" from the unyielding physical, emotional and psychological demands of cancer by providing one-week, expense-paid trips to several locations, including the Crossing the Finish Line home in Davenport, Florida. All proceeds raised went to Crossing the Finish Line’s mission to strengthen the hearts, minds, and souls of young adult cancer patients and their families.
