When: November 3, 2011

Where: Jumeirah Essex House,  NYC

Why: To raise money and awareness to help fight lung cancer!

Yves and I and the rest of Nite-Time are excited to announce that we will be participating in the first annual Hope Gala to benefit the LUNGevity foundation. LUNGevity was “founded by seven Chicago area lung cancer survivors in November of 2000 to increase funding for lung cancer research.” Their vision is of “a world where no one dies of lung cancer” and we are thrilled to be able to do our small part to help them get one step closer to realizing that vision.

The gala will take place on November 3rd at the beautiful and iconic Essex House on Central Park South in NYC. There will be a cocktail reception at 6:30pm, followed by dinner and dancing at 7:30pm. Additional entertainment will be provided by Chrissy Bridgeman from Painted Rhythm Dance Company.

This cause is near and dear to our hearts. Both Yves and I have lost loved ones to this devastating disease, which is incredibly hard to detect in it’s early stages and therefore claims more lives in the U.S. per year than any other type of cancer. Lung cancer, contrary to popular belief, can afflict anyone regardless of gender, ethnicity or a history of smoking. For more information on lung cancer, check out LUNGevity’s page about the disease here.

We’ll have pics and a full report on the event in the coming weeks…
