Southampton, NY – May 29, 2014 – For the eighth consecutive year, Coopers Beach in Southampton was filled with color, laughter and hope as supporters, survivors, and Long Island residents came together for Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s annual “Kites for a Cure®” on Saturday, May 24. From 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., crowds gathered to raise kites, spirits, and funds, and to welcome the summer season. Approximately 500 lung cancer supporters came out to share the day’s festive mood and fly kites, which resulted in almost $60,000 raised for innovative lung cancer research.

“‘Kites for a Cure’ always brings joy to Coopers Beach – it’s something for the whole family that not only welcomes summer, but ultimately brings people together in hope to rally against the nation’s number one cancer killer,” said Mark Epley, Mayor of the Village of Southampton. “We truly love hosting this event year after year, and it’s a privilege to assist the work of this incredible organization.”

Funds raised from the event itself, along with an underwriting sponsorship from Rechler Equity Partners and The Hampton Business District at Gabreski, will go directly to Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s national lung cancer research grant program. For a donation of $30, guests received a high-quality kite which they were able to decorate on-site with pictures, names, or their own special message. Refreshments were provided by Tate’s Bakeshop, Hain Celestial, and Hint water throughout the afternoon.

“We are proud to support Uniting Against Lung Cancer and contribute to this event’s success year after year,” said Gregg Rechler, managing partner of Rechler Equity Partners, who lost his father, Roger, to lung cancer. “We are all hopeful that with the efforts dedicated to funding research, another person and their family will not have to endure the effects of this terrible disease.”

“The support of the local community, the Village of Southampton, the Southampton Chamber of Commerce and the many local businesses is integral,” continued Mary Ann Tighe, Uniting Against Lung Cancer’s board president. “We truly appreciate their enthusiasm and dedication to our event, and it is with their help that we are a few steps closer to finding a cure.”

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.  The Foundation has awarded more than $11.5 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, yet it receives less federal research funding per death than any of the other major cancers.

Uniting Against Lung Cancer (UALC), a 501 (c) (3) organization headquartered in New York, is dedicated to finding a cure for lung cancer by providing funding for innovative research, and to raising awareness of the nation’s leading cancer killer.
