Lung Association Brings the Flavors of Charlotte into the Home for the Reimagined Turquoise Tasting

Local fundraiser to end lung cancer, support COVID-19 initiative

Today, the American Lung Association in North Carolina announced that the LUNG FORCE Turquoise Tasting presented by Novant Health will take place on Saturday, September 26. The event, which typically takes place at the Duke Mansion, was reimagined as a live wine tasting and gourmet meal delivered to the home of participants.

The event will include a live wine tasting, local gourmet food from Rare Roots Hospitality, $1,000 Diamonds Direct raffle and silent auction to raise money for critical lung cancer research. The event will also feature the LUNG FORCE Honors social media campaign, which recognizes lung cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare workers, advocates and anyone else who helps ease the burden of lung cancer in North Carolina.

“This year’s event will bring our fun and festive Turquoise Tasting event into the comfort of your home. We are excited to offer multiple packages to choose from to help you host a fun evening with your family or an intimate dinner party with your close friends,” said Jennifer Hall, the executive director of the Lung Association. “This year’s Turquoise Tasting will be a great event, but it also comes at a time when it is more important than ever to support lung health.”

Money raised at the LUNG FORCE Turquoise Tasting will fund the Lung Association’s efforts to end lung cancer through education, advocacy and research. It also supports the Lung Association’s COVID-19 Action Initiative, a $25 million investment to address COVID-19 and protect against future respiratory virus pandemics.

This year’s event is presented by Novant Health. Thank you to our local sponsors Landmark Builders, Merck, Rare Roots Hospitality, Atrium Health Levine Cancer Institute, Fionix Consulting, Mecklenburg Radiology Associates, Nuance, and Rankin Wealth Management.
