Memorial Day Weekend Family Kite Fly a
Soaring Success at Southampton Beach

Bringing 1,000 People Together to Raise Hope and $ for Lung Cancer Research

s

Southampton, NY (June 1, 2011) – On Memorial Day weekend, Cooper’s Beach in Southampton saw hundreds of beautifully decorated kites flying over its shores and more than 1,000 people in attendance to participate in Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s “Kites for a Cure.” The annual family kite fly benefiting lung cancer research celebrated its fifth year this summer. The event was held on Saturday, May 28th, from 4:00-6:00 p.m. and raised $50,000 for innovative cancer research across the country.

“It was such a joy to see hundreds of families and friends gathered as a community to kick of the summer season in the Hamptons in such a beautiful and meaningful way,” said Mark Epley, Mayor of the Village of Southampton. Mr. Epley served as the Honorary Commodore of the event, having lost his father to lung cancer six years ago. “This is one of the highlights of the year and it’s become a beacon of hope for people who have been touched by lung cancer. It is a way to remember people lost on Memorial Day Weekend, and to celebrate the start of a fantastic summer.”

For a $30 donation, each flyer received a blank, high-quality white kite which they could decorate with their artistic designs, or photos with messages of hope and love for those suffering with lung cancer. A variety of decorating materials in every color imaginable were provided at beachfront art stations. All proceeds from “Kites for a Cure” will go to Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s research grant program.

Uniting Against Lung Cancer was founded in 2001 in memory of Joan Scarangello, a Southampton resident and non-smoker who lost her battle with lung cancer.  In just seven years, the foundation has awarded more than $7 million in research grants to find a cure for the disease that will claim an estimated 160,000 lives in the U.S. this year.

Lung cancer will kill more Americans this year than ­­colon, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers combined, and more women than breast, uterine and ovarian cancers combined. Yet it receives less federal research funding per death than any of the other major cancers.

“Lung cancer suffers from the stigma of smoking, so very few people talk about the disease or rally for change in public,” noted Linda Wenger, the foundation’s Executive Director. “Kites for a Cure gives people a chance to do something hopeful in the face of the monumental challenge of lung cancer, and to bring their voices together as families raising awareness about the disease and the desperate need for research funding. We are thrilled for the amazing turnout and the dedication of our guests.”

Uniting Against Lung Cancer, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization headquartered in New York, is the single largest private non-profit source of funding for lung cancer research in the United States.   Increasingly joined by like-minded organizations and families, Uniting Against Lung Cancer is recognized for spurring new and innovative research projects – ideas that wouldn’t get off the ground without the seed funding Uniting Against Lung Cancer provides – the Foundation has quickly become the venture capital source for important research into the disease.
