A Supreme Evening of the Heart

The fight to reduce death and disability caused by heart disease and stroke is a daily battle. The American Heart Association (AHA) recently celebrated the 10th Anniversary of its Go Red For Women campaign with the 2013 Go Red For Women Luncheon here in the Coachella Valley. That campaign has saved the lives of 627,000 women since its launch a decade ago.

While we celebrated that success, we were also reminded that the fight against heart disease and stroke is far from over. And the best place to start winning that battle is at home – by making heart healthy lifestyle choices. These choices not only impact our own health, but the health and well-being of our loved ones.

With that in mind, we encourage you to attend the upcoming 2013 Coachella Valley Ignite Heart Ball.

“A Supreme Evening for the Heart” – featuring Mary Wilson of The Supremes – is a rare opportunity to hear one of America’s classic voices, and to learn more about decisions you can make to improve your own heart health.

“A Supreme Evening for the Heart” takes place on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at the Westin Mission Hills Resort and Spa.

The 2013 Coachella Valley Ignite Heart Ball is being brought to the community by the American Heart Association’s Heart Ball Committee. Committee members include Kathleen von Dehn, Carol Adolf, Lisa Ford, Dr. Barry Hackshaw, and Denise Kramer – to name a few. The Heart Ball is chaired by Keith Goff, Dr. Charlie Shaeffer, and Dr. & Mrs. Frank Kerrigan.

The Heart Ball is a major fund-raising event benefiting research, public education and community programs of the American Heart Association. It is also the premier social event in recognition of its mission-related activities in the Coachella Valley. More than 250 guests are expected to attend with the objective of raising more than $100,000 for the fight against heart disease and stroke.

Founded in 1924, AHA is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary health organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of heart disease and stroke. To help prevent, treat and defeat these diseases — America’s No. 1 and No. 3 killers – AHA funds cutting-edge research, conducts lifesaving public and professional educational programs, and advocates to protect public health.

The 2013 Coachella Valley Ignite Heart Ball is sponsored by Rabobank and The General Heating & Air Conditioning.
