Throughout the campaign, candidates hosted fundraisers, sold tickets to the Finale and educated their connections on cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.  

Elizabeth Paff earned the title of 2017 Cincinnati’s Finest Under Fifty Professional by raising over $20,000, while the total generated by the candidates topped $109,000.

In all, the campaign raised over $114,000.
