MediaStreet Inc. has used its award-winning photo inks and papers to produce
a magnificent photo exhibit to raise money to help find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Produced with MediaStreet's Generations inks and enlarged to 30x40-inches
on their Royal Renaissance papers, the exhibit-quality prints were displayed
during the foundation's annual Gala fundraiser. The gallery prints were
auctioned individually to the highest bidders during a live auction. ? ?With
the help of MediaStreet's participation and other corporate sponsors,
Cystic Fibrosis was able to raise more than $130K for CF research.



"It is a wonderful feeling to know that our products and services were
used to raise funding for medical research," said Norm Levy, President
of MediaStreet. "The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is geared toward one thing
-- raising money for research to find a cure for CF. We were honored to
be asked for our help and thrilled to do whatever we could to help," Mr.
Levy added.



About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation?When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was
established in 1955, children with cystic fibrosis (CF) were not expected to
live long enough to attend elementary school. Thanks, in large part, to the
Foundation's aggressive investments in innovative research and comprehensive
care, the median survival age for people with this disease is now nearly 37
years.???After more than 50 years of service, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
remains committed to its core mission: to develop more therapies that will extend
and enhance the lives of those with cystic fibrosis and ultimately to find a
cure or control for CF.
