For the 11th year, the American Lung Association in Kentucky will host Louisville’s premiere Halloween party, the Breath of Fresh Air Bash, on October 26 at The Olmsted in Louisville.

This year, the event theme is “Regards to Broadway,” where the organization invites attendees to dress as their favorite Broadway character. The event offers chances to bid on exclusive items, like a “Dinner with the Spirits” at Stoneware & Company with Chef Bobby Benjamin, a bottle of Buffalo Trace 6th Millionth Barrel of bourbon, and much more.

“The Breath of Fresh Air Bash is a fantastic event that is the highlight of fall in Louisville,” said Deena Adams, executive director for the Lung Association. “This year, we are very excited about our live auction, raffle and bourbon pull offerings, which will give attendees access to some exclusive products and experiences.”

The Breath of Fresh Air Bash is sponsored by the Envirome Institute, and the honorary chair is Cathy Zion, Owner/Publisher of Today’s Woman, Regional Board member of the Lung Association, Midland Region, and lung cancer survivor. During the event, the Lung Association’s mission will be front and center; LUNG FORCE Hero and lung cancer survivor, Marisa Wittebort, will be recognized for her advocacy for lung cancer patients.

The event takes place on Saturday, October 26 at the Olmsted in Louisville. The evening includes a social hour and open bar, dancing and live music by “The Sensations,” a seated gourmet dinner, live auction, raffle, and a bourbon pull. 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.
