Less than a month to go to the annual Breathe Concert! This special fundraising event will take place on Friday, February 10, 2012 at the Historic Hawaii Theatre. It's a benefit for the American Lung Association in Hawaii.
For over 80 years, ALA Hawaii has served the people of our state. This as Hawaii remains ranked second in the nation for youth asthma, with over 175,000 people in the islands living with some form of lung disease. That’s more than the combined populations of Maui and Kauai.
Lung cancer is also the number one cancer killer of women and men in our state.
This year’s Breathe Concert features four-time Na Hoku Hanohano Awards winner Mark Yamanaka. Others include Kupaoa, Mailani, and Danny Couch. Al Waterson along with Ballet Hawaii will provide a spectacular evening of song and dance under the artistic direction of Cathy Foy.
"Cathy Foy has once again created a fantastic line-up and we are so fortunate to have her join us in the Fight for Air," said Hawaii Director Lorraine Leslie.
Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. concert are $135, $55 and $35 at the Hawaii Theatre Center box office, 1130 Bethel Street; by phone at (808) 528-0506, and online. The $135 tickets include an invitation to the pre-and post concert party at The Venue with entertainment, heavy pupus, good spirits and a meet and greet with the performers.
ALA in Hawaii, the oldest voluntary health organization in the state, was founded in 1929 on Kauai. It is a 501c(3) non-profit organization. Statewide programs include advocacy and education for tobacco prevention and cessation, asthma control, air quality and lung disease.
