'Rock of Ages' evening helps fight rare lung, liver disease

Aug 1, 2014

The Alpha-1 Foundation will host a benefit evening including a performance of the Broadway musical "Rock of Ages" August 22 at the Venetian. There will be a cocktail party from 5 to 7 p.m. at Pinot Brasserie, then the show. Afterwards, meet the cast! RSVP by August 1.

The foundation raises money to fight the rare hereditary condition Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, which can result in serious lung or liver disease. Many people with COPD, emphysema, or other chronic lung conditions may have Alpha-1, but haven't been tested. The national website is here.

Tickets are $125. For more information, contact Gus Straub at 433-2929 or e-mail him at
