A MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIR
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the nation and stroke is the fourth leading cause of death. The American Heart Association is the organization leading the charge to combat this deadly disease. Countless Americans owe their lives to AHA-funded research breakthroughs and the AHA’s professional guidelines, training, advocacy and programs. These people rely on the AHA to educate and empower themselves about nutrition, physical activity and other preventive measures. The American Heart Association has an extraordinary impact on lives by empowering people to save lives, live healthier and enjoy more peace of mind about cardiovascular disease.
I am proud to be the Chair of the 2011 28th Annual Capital Region Heart Ball. This is an event and an organization that is vital to the health of our community. The Capital Region Heart Ball gathers prominent executives, philanthropic and medical industry representatives to fund lifesaving advancements in the area of heart disease and stroke. The event strives to honor and celebrate the success of the year that has passed and to set the stage for medical advancements, health breakthroughs and community-wide passion in the year ahead.
It would not be possible to accomplish the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association without the support of our community. Your participation in the 2011 28th Annual Capital Region Heart Ball will help save lives and empower our community to live healthier. Won’t you please join us for both a fun and memorable evening?
As this year’s Chair, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for your consideration of support.
