Heart Health Education was the Key Takeaway at ‘Go Red for Women’ Luncheon

Notable Moments: Commemorating the campaign’s 20th anniversary, Go Red for Women 2024 pulled out all the stops with a “20 Shades of Red” theme, demonstrating that cardiovascular disease impacts women of all walks of life and does not discriminate. The event greeted guests with real stories of local survivors, who participated in a survivor strut runway presentation during the program. Attendees in the ballroom were inspired to make meaningful contributions during the live auction and paddle-raise moment, raising funds for heart health. Local firefighters collected the final bid cards as table hosts set off bubble machines hidden in the centerpieces for a festive finale!
