American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy and research.

For more than 100 years, we have led the fight for healthy lungs and healthy air, whether it's searching for cures to lung diseases, keeping kids off tobacco, or fighting for laws that protect the air we all breathe. Our hard work has paid off, yet we still have so much to do. With LUNG FORCE, we are building on our 50 years of fighting lung cancer – from prevention and early detection methods to improved treatments and enhanced support of patients and caregivers. When you join the American Lung Association and LUNG FORCE in the fight against lung cancer and for lung health, you join us in our mission to improve lives—and save lives.

Los Angeles

The inaugural American Lung Association LUNG FORCE Gala is like no other charity event in Los Angeles.

It is a passionate and intimate evening that celebrates the collective power of our breath and voices to stand against lung cancer and for lung health. The LUNG FORCE Gala will unite women, their families and the entire community in the fight against lung cancer and for lung health. Together, we will form a power movement to end lung cancer, the nation’s number one cancer killer.

This inspiring evening will feature entertainment, very special guests and a gourmet meal, all set in the glamorous Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, home of the Los Angeles Opera and host to many of the world’s most prestigious ballet companies.
