Did you know that here in Florida, more than 2.7 million people live with lung disease, including lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma? The American Lung Association is the leading health organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through research, education and advocacy. For the past 27 years, the community support of the Las Olas Wine and Food festival has raised critical funding to help defeat lung cancer, improve the air we breathe, reduce the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families and eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases.

“The Las Olas Wine and Food Festival is one of South Florida’s area’s most unique festivals combining a must-do social event with raising critical funds for the lifesaving mission of the American Lung Association. We are delighted to return to Las Olas Boulevard this April and encourage the Florida foodie community to join us for a night to remember,” said Teresa Deasy, member of the Lung Association’s South Florida Local Leadership Board and associate vice president of service lines, Broward Health Medical Center. Deasy also serves as chair of the Las Olas Wine and Food Festival.
