On November 2, Indianapolis residents will don black and while masks to help raise money for life-saving lung cancer research at the American Lung Association in Indiana’s Evening of Promise Gala.

The black tie event will feature a black and white masquerade ball theme. During the event, the Lung Association will honor Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield for their work to improve lung health in Indiana.

“Lung cancer is known as the silent or invisible killer, because it often doesn’t present any symptoms until the later stages of the disease. At this year’s Evening of Promise, we hope to ‘unmask’ this disease here in Indiana,” said Tanya Husain, executive director for the Lung Association. “The Evening of Promise will be truly impactful, as we will honor Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield for the incredible work they do to prevent lung disease, prevent tobacco use and fund critical local programing.”

The Evening of Promise is one of the largest and most prominent Lung Association galas in the country. This year, the event is presented by Merrill Lynch and St. Vincent Health.

The event takes place on Saturday, November 2 at the JW Marriott Indianapolis. It includes a live and silent auction, live music and dancing. Almost 90 cents of every dollar raised goes to the Lung Association’s programs and services, including research, advocacy and public health education. More information, tickets and sponsorship information is available here.
