BELIEVE. INSPIRE. CELEBRATE HOPE...
every second counts.

Join us at the 2013 Fall Benefit for an evening of music and inspiration at Chicago’s dynamic, new Montgomery Club by Gibsons.

On November 16, 2013 more than 500 guests will support LUNGevity’s efforts to raise funds to stop lung cancer and celebrate the hope and promise of survivorship.  The Fall Benefit was LUNGevity’s inaugural event in 2000.  Since its inception, more than $3.2 million has been raised to fund the most promising lung cancer research in the world. 

The evening’s proceeds will further LUNGevity’s effort to fund high-impact research, its online lung cancer support community for patients and caregivers, and its education and survivorship programs. 

Please support all of those who battle lung cancer by attending this special evening featuring cool jazz, cocktails, and a menu featuring favorites from Gibsons Restaurant Group.

“The funds for lung cancer research are
relatively small today, and the burden on
the healthcare system is huge. LUNGevity
is really coming at the perfect time to try
to address a tremendous need and further
research that is impactful.”
