American Heart Association's 2011 Heart Ball in Fort Wayne

The day started out with a fresh new six inches of snow on the ground and closed schools all around the Fort Wayne area, but by the afternoon the sun was out making way for a wonderful evening in support of a worthy cause, "Rhythm of the Heart" - 2011 Heart Ball in Fort Wayne.  Dr. Rudy and Rhonda Kachmann welcomed guest as they arrived for an evening of Learning and Living.

The evening started out with old and new friends mingling while bidding on wonderful silent auction items, sipping drinks, eating hors d'oeuvres, and listening to smooth jazz provided by Fort Wayne area musicians.

During dinner three local families that have been personally touched by heart disease gave testimonials to how the American Heart Association has helped them during their most difficult times.  After dinner everyone enjoyed listening and dancing to the music of local favorite, Prime Time.
