American Lung Association Benefit Honors Clean & Green

“The American Lung Association focuses on clean air initiatives and green living environments in the greater San Diego area through many advocacy programs and the annual Scamp Camp for children."

- Cub Parker, Chair--Leadership Council, State Board of Directors, Honorary Committee--Evening in the Sky, American Lung Association


The Evening in the Sky event April 18th, 2009 at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa benefitted the American Lung Association in a big green way. Three Honorees were applauded for their work to make living environments more green and clean. The Honorees were:  Vincent E. Mudd, President and Chief Executive Officer of San Diego Office Interiors, for outstanding contributions to green and healthy work environments,  Irene Stillings, Executive Director of the California Center for Sustainable Energy, for visionary clean and green leadership, and Les Hart representing Waste Management of San Diego, for green leadership including clean-burning truck fleets.

Jan Cortez, San Diego and Imperial Counties Area Director for the American Lung Association in California, and Cub Parker, Chair--Leadership Council, State Board of Directors


There were Green Appletinis, silent auction items including items from John Hawkins of Cloud 9, San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego Padres, a savory dinner with Herb Roasted Guinea Hen and Crab Cake Duo, and later dancing to the band, Cool Band Luke.

Oh, and there were those very fuel efficient and cute SMART CARS parked out front.

Among the fashionable there were Michelle Burke in a strapless BeBe dress, Kathleen Seymour in an aptly colored green cocktail dress, Linda Devine in Calvin Klein, Camille Sobrian in an Alpert Nipon suit, Jo Dee Jacob in a beautiful silk suit, and Jim Mulvaney Jr. in an artsy tie designed by a St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center student. John Hawkins came accessorized with a natty coprorate 'Cloud 9' tie.

This event had a very clean and green purpose behind the fun as noted by attendee Duane Roth. “As I listened to the award recipients last night, I realized how much opportunity there is to improve the air we breathe. From design features in office space and furniture, to waste management, to education and advocacy, the recipients each offered ideas that will  transform our environment for the better.”

And there are many ways to have better air quality in addition to not smoking!

Some of the many great ways to clean up air as advised by the American Lung Association, are the following:

Outdoors, you can plant a tree, use a broom instead of leafblower, replace a gas-powered lawnmore with a push lawnmower, and don't burn wood or trash.

For indoors, many opportunites for improvement exist. Grow indoor houseplants, use 'clean' cleaning methods that have low impact chemicals, and remedy any leaky faucets, leaky windows. You get the idea.

For transportation, limit driving as much as possible and bundle errands and other activities. Walking, biking and commuter systems all help cut down on emmissions.

And keep your Senators and Representatives.apprised and motivated.

"The American Lung Association is working statewide to prevent lung disease and promote lung health. Since 1904, the American Lung Association has been fighting lung disease through education, community service, advocacy and research. Learn more at"
