The Central Louisiana American Heart Association hosts its annual Go Red for Women Luncheon on June 13, 2014, at Alexandria Riverfront Center, beginning at 10:30 am. Chairperson of the event is Suzie Wagner of HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital and co-chair is Cindy Sayes of Sayes office Supply. Rapides Regional Medical Center joins us once again as our Presenting sponsor.
This exciting event will include a silent auction, heart healthy luncheon and complimentary health screenings. CHRISTUS Dubuis Hospital will give free health screenings to anyone attending the luncheon. Please join us and have your blood pressure, BMI, and cholesterol checked in just a matter of minutes. At 12:00 pm, the heart-healthy luncheon program begins with Toni Wild. Toni is an inspiring speaker with a powerful message that will share her story of survival in dealing with Heart Disease. Her mission is to educate and make women aware that Heart Disease is their #1 killer and Stroke is the #4 killer. It is her strong desire that through the sharing of her own story she can give hope to others who may be going through similar circumstances.
The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement uncovers the truth about heart disease – an often silent, hidden and misunderstood killer – so that all women can share the truth. More than one in five females has some form of cardiovascular disease taking the lives of more than a half million women every year – more than the next FOUR causes of death combined, including cancer.
Individual tickets for the Central Louisiana Go Red For Women luncheon program are $100 and tables of 8 are $1,500, payable in advance. To purchase tickets and for more information, please call the local AHA office, 318-794-9621. Make it your mission to Go Red!
Go Red For Women is sponsored nationally by Macy’s and sponsored locally by Rapides Regional Medical Center, Christus Dubuis Hospital and Roy O Martin.
