Heart Ball Welcomes More Than 800 Attendees to Boost American Heart Association
Posted By Jamie Killin on November 21, 2017
The 58th Annual Heart Ball welcomed a sold-out crowd of more than 800 guests on November 18 to raise vital funds to support the work of the American Heart Association, which includes research, lifesaving prevention and education programs and advocacy for improved health.
“Every single person looked just wonderful and had a great time,” said event chair Char Hubble. “Yet, even more important than that, we have nothing but gratitude for what they all did in helping to support the American Heart Association’s mission to save lives from cardiovascular disease and stroke.”
Since it was founded, Phoenix Heart Ball volunteers have raised over 30 million for the American Heart Association — which helps fight some of the nation’s most lethal diseases, including heart disease and stroke.
The Phoenician was transformed into a new concept with gold, white, silver and black tones, created by Jose Graterol Designs. The JB Project provided entertainment throughout the evening.
Mr. and Mrs. Joe Shoen served as the event’s honorary chairs and Lynne Love was this year’s Sweetheart.
The executive team consisted of vice-chairwomen Jennifer Moser, Molly Stockley and chairwoman-elect Carolyn Jackson.
