Several Kansas City businesses are coming together to fight lung cancer for the American Lung Association in Kansas & Greater Kansas City’s LUNG FORCE Glam at Arrowhead Stadium on May 9.
Presenting sponsors of the event are The Accurso Law Firm, The University of Kansas Health System together with The University of Kansas Cancer Center, and Applebee’s in partnership with Centralized Supply Chain Services. Saint Luke’s Cancer Institute is a Gold Sponsor of the event. These local companies have committed to a significant investment in the Lung Association, which supports their mission to improve lung health and prevent lung disease in the community.
“Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women in the U.S. There so much more that needs to be done to prevent and treat this terrible disease, and we know we can’t do it alone,” said Linda Crider, the executive director for the Lung Association. “The investment of these local companies is vital in helping us fund life-saving lung cancer research to provide better treatments and help find a cure for lung cancer.”
This is the third year of the LUNG FORCE Glam event, which will feature a cocktail reception, auction opportunities for all guests, a plated dinner and an inspirational program at Arrowhead Stadium. Almost 90 cents of every dollar raised will go to the Lung Association’s programs and services, including research, advocacy and health education.
Tickets, table reservations and sponsorships for the LUNG FORCE Glam are currently available online or by calling the Lung Association at 913-353-9165.
