Last week I got invited to Abe & Louie’s to attend the American Heart Association‘s Heart Ball Reception to celebrate Heart Month. Guests were wearing festive red attire, sipping new wines and tasting paired appetizers created by Executive Chef Tindaro Losurdo. 100% of all donations made during the evening went to benefit the American Heart Association.
This event was the kick-off to the 2014 Boston Heart Ball taking place on Saturday, May 3rd at the Westin Copley Hotel. Last years Heart Ball campaign raised over $51 million nation-wide allowing the AHA to fund over $123 million of research and programs all over the country. With the mission of “Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and strokes” the American Heart Association has been working to eliminate heart diseases since it was founded in 1924!
Below is a peek at some photos from the Heart Ball Reception as well some facts about cardiovascular disease and the American Heart Association!
