Today, the American Lung Association in Missouri announced that Wunderman Thompson Health has signed on as a presenting sponsor for the first-ever Evening of Promise, an interactive culinary experience, on June 13 at The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s.
The Evening of Promise is a cocktail-style event that invites guests to “taste the states” by sampling cuisines from different regions of the U.S., including the southwest, west coast, south and St. Louis. Held in the Caramel Room at Bissinger's, there will also be guest activities with chocolate, including a chocolate and wine pairing, and a truffle dipping experience.
“We look forward to a fun, yet impactful event, and this couldn’t happen without sponsors like Wunderman Thompson Health,” said Brett Schuette, the executive director for the Lung Association. “Here in Missouri, we face health challenges such as high smoking rates, poor air quality and more than 850,000 of our residents who suffer from lung disease. We are very thankful to Wunderman Thompson Health for supporting the Evening of Promise and our mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.”
“We are honored to support such an important cause and organization. The mission of the American Lung Association is near and dear to our hearts, as we share a common goal of inspiring people to healthy action and influencing health outcomes. Together, I believe we can truly make a difference,” said Mike Burns, President, Wunderman Thompson Health, St. Louis, and board member of the Lung Association.
Wunderman Thompson Health is a creative, data and science agency that inspires growth for ambitious health brands by breaking health inertia and motivating action. The company is global and has a regional St. Louis office.
The Evening of Promise will begin at 6 p.m. at The Caramel Room at Bissinger’s and include several food and dessert stations, beverages, music and a short program. Almost 90 cents of every dollar raised at the event will go to the Lung Association’s local programs and services, including research, advocacy and public health education. More information and tickets are available on the Evening of Promise website.
