The single professionals were selected by Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on the basis of their activity in the community, success in their careers and commitment to others through their support of charitable causes.
Throughout the year, the 50 Finest will host fundraising events to benefit CFF. The 2010 group raised a record net of more than $260,000.
