Whitney Roberts of San Marco proved to be the finest of “Jacksonville’s Finest” during a recent dinner held at the Omni Jacksonville Hotel to honor dozens of young professionals who helped the local chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation meet its financial goal during the agency’s 16th annual fundraiser.
Roberts used a letter campaign, social media and personal phone calls to raise more than $5,000, well above the minimum commitment of $1,500.
“It’s pretty awesome,” said Roberts, who has been working with cystic fibrosis patients at Wolfson Children’s Hospital since moving to Jacksonville from Annapolis, MD two years ago. “It’s an honor to help find a cure.

“I don’t think a lot of people realize how devastating cystic fibrosis is,” she said. “I’ve lost a few patients already.”
Chapter officials used the theme “Jacksonville’s Finest” to recruit dozens of young professionals, all of whom helped the chapter meet its goal of $75,000. Development director Lynn Betros said she was delighted with the results, given that her agency has undergone a major restructuring and did not hold a fundraiser last year.
“It went very well,” Betros said. “They all did a phenomenal job, and I’m so proud of Whitney. She’s got a lot of passion about cystic fibrosis, and it shows.”
