The Kira Sikes group is excited for the event and hope to win a performance slot for the live spring event.

They are also looking for sponsors, and donations to raise awareness for lung disease.

“We know firsthand that the ‘battle’ is long and hard, not just for the patient suffering from these diseases, but for the entire family. This is a huge reason why we are very passionate about our community and getting to know each person within it,” said Sikes.

“Outside of real estate, we cherish and value every individual relationship, and want to be there in the good and the bad! This includes the families hurting and struggling with all forms of lung disease,” said Sikes.

Everyone is invited to watch The Sikes Group performance at the virtual Lip Sync For Lungs event at 6 p.m. on October 15.
