It was an evening to remember for the hundreds of attendees who came out for the American Lung Association in Missouri’s Evening of Promise Gala on June 23rd at The Caramel Room. The event raised close to $100,000 to support lifesaving research, local programs and advocacy for the 982,000 Missourians living with chronic lung disease.
“The celebratory atmosphere of this Gala made the evening an unforgettable experience for all those who champion lung health and support the Lung Association’s efforts to help end lung disease,” said Brett Schuette, executive director at the Lung Association. “It was a privilege to join so many of our wonderful supporters in the community and raise a glass to a future of better lung health.”
Attendees enjoyed delicious global cuisine and engaged in a silent auction, with items ranging from entertainment packages to unique experiences, at St. Louis’ premier venue. Funds raised from the event contribute to the Lung Association’s mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.
