The Host Committee

Being part of the CHILL Host Committee gives you the opportunity to create a memorable evening for clients, friends and/or family as well as make a difference in the lives of people living with asthma, COPD, lung cancer and other lung diseases. CHILL proceeds support RHA’s education, research and policy change efforts.

“CHILL is an excellent way to entertain clients, bring colleagues together outside the office or have a great evening with friends, all while benefitting the important life-changing work of RHA.”  – George A. Zelcs, Partner at Korein Tillery LLC and CHILL 2017 Co-Chair
