"Rhythm of the Heart" - 2011 Heart Ball in Fort Wayne

The American Heart Association will host the 2011 Heart Ball, "Rhythm of the Heart" at the Fort Wayne Country Club on Friday, February 25, 2011.

Just over 250 people may attend this formal event, which will feature dinner, a live & silent auction and entertainment. So be sure to reserve your space early!

Dr. Rudy and Rhonda Kachmann will welcome guests for an evening of Jazz Music by the Dana Christy Trio and Chuck Surack's band, Prime Time.

The Heart Ball attendees will have the opportunity to support the Learn and Live Special Appeal, which addresses the critical issue of children's heart health. Research on heart-related birth defects, the alarming increase in childhood obesity, and teaching children about the importance of nutrition and exercise are just a few of the issues this initiative supports.

The Fort Wayne Heart Ball is a major fundraising event benefiting research, public education and  community programs of the American Heart Association and its mission-related activities in Allen County. In the previous five years the American Heart Association has funded 79 studies at six Indiana institutions with an investment of $9.8 million. Breakthroughs have been made, but many research questions remain.

The American Heart Association appreciates the continued support of the Fort Wayne community. Please contact Mary Pat Leonard if you are interested in sponsoring this event, donating an item for the live and/or silent auctions, or attending.
