The Butterfly Ball to Benefit Lung Association
Date:9/13/2007

OAK PARK, Mich., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Lung Association of Michigan (ALAM) will hold its black tie fund raiser, The Butterfly Ball, 6 p.m. to midnight Saturday, Nov. 3, 2007, at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. Proceeds from the event will go for lung health research, education and advocacy.

The event will pay tribute to the General Motors Corp. for its development of FlexFuel vehicles, to community leader and philanthropist Sue Nine of Bloomfield Hills and to TV and radio personality Charles Pugh of Detroit. GM, Ms. Nine and Mr. Pugh will be honored for helping to advance the mission of ALAM: promoting lung health and preventing lung disease.

The evening will be highlighted by music from Rhythm Society and include a cocktail reception, dinner, dancing and a live auction, featuring trips, dinners and a variety of experiences. Barbara L. Whittaker chairs The Butterfly Ball committee.

The ball is part of the association's year-long, statewide Catch Your Breath: Women's Lung Health Campaign to raise awareness about women's lung health and funds for research into lung disease.

More than 70,000 women will die this year from lung cancer, more than from breast, ovarian and cervical cancers combined. Nearly 10,000 Michigan women are living with life-threatening lung diseases such as lung cancer, asthma, emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Thousands more have died. At the same time, lung cancer in never smokers is on the rise. Non-smoking-associated lung cancer is higher among women than men, and second- hand smoke has been established as a major cause.

Sponsors to date include the Observer and Eccentric Newspapers, Between the Lines, General Motors Corp., LaSalle Bank and Ambassador Magazine. The public is invited. Tickets are $250 per person, and sponsorships are available. For tickets and information, contact Jessica Jimenez, development specialist, (248) 784-2018 or jjimenez@alam.org.
