Southampton, NY – “Kites For a Cure,” a family kite
fly benefit on Coopers Beach in Southampton, NY, to
raise money for lung cancer research, will take
place on Saturday, May 29, 2010 from 4:00 to 6:00
p.m. The event is hosted by Uniting Against Lung
Cancer. Kites, snacks and family fun will be
available to all guests for a $25 donation in
advance or for $30 at the event. (The rain date for
the kite fly is Sunday, May 30 from 4:00 to 6:00

More than 500 families are expected to join in the
fun at this fourth annual Memorial Day kite fly.
Guests will be able to decorate their kites at the
site – drawing pictures or memorial messages – and
take advantage of the afternoon’s off-shore breezes
to lift their kites to the sky.
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 over $10 million in research grants into
diagnosis, treatment and a cure for lung cancer.
Lung cancer is the nation’s #1 cancer killer,
claiming more than 160,000 lives in the U.S. this
