NEW YORK, NY - Dec. 1, 2014 - The COPD Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to curing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), will host its 2014 Annual Awards and Recognition Benefit, Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, 6:30-9:30 p.m., at the Powerhouse, American Museum of Natural History, Columbus Avenue at 79th Street, New York, New York. The Chapin Sisters, Lily & Abigail Chapin, are performing.

With two critically-acclaimed full-length albums under their belt, 2008s Lake Bottom LP and 2010s Two, Abigail and Lily released A Date with the Everly Brothers in the Spring of 2013. Recorded in one day, live in the studio with a full band in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the album includes 14 of the sisters’ favorite Everlys songs, a tribute as well as a master class in harmony singing. The album was featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition, The New York Times’ T magazine, and has been included on many year-end top 10 lists.

The COPD Foundation is pleased to recognize the 2014 Benefit Honorees: Patti Everly, Phil Everly Champion for COPD Award; The Silver Palate/Grain Berry, COPD Advocate Award; and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COPD Treatment Award.

"After a decade of research, education and early diagnosis, the COPD Foundation recognizes this year’s honorees for their dedication to improving the lives of those living with COPD,” says John W. Walsh. “This event acknowledges individuals and organizations that have gone above and beyond to help raise awareness, provide education and insight, and identify the growing number of at-risk Americans.”
