American Lung Association in Minnesota's Oxygen Ball gala is an inspiring evening that makes a significant impact on those affected by lung disease. Guests are immersed in an artistic experience through special artwork and uplifting activities designed to help celebrate breath, voice and hope. Additionally, the event includes dinner, drinks and an auction.
On May 11, 2017, 180 people gathered at The Aria in Minneapolis for a cocktail reception, silent auction, unique art experience, full dinner program and live auction. LUNG FORCE Hero and cancer survivor Katherine Bensen gave an inspirational speech about her cancer journey. The event raised $133,000 to support research, education and patient programs to help the millions impacted by lung cancer, asthma, COPD and other lung diseases such as interstitial lung disease.
Slated for May 11, the 2018 Oxygen ball will again welcome Minnesotans to a unique event with elite art, cuisine and entertainment, all to support the fight against lung disease.
