More than 400 heart and stroke survivors, physicians, and business and community leaders will gather to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Red River Valley Heart Ball on January 30th.
The annual Heart Ball marks the American Heart Association’s efforts throughout the year to raise awareness, fund research, and save lives. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the gala in Fargo and will celebrate “Life’s Precious Moments.”
“To experience more of life’s precious moments, we must be healthy in both heart and mind,” said Yassar Alamanaseer, M.D., a cardiologist with Essentia Health and a co-chair of the 2016 Heart Ball. “The funds raised at this important event will help support the lifesaving medical research, regional grants and educational programs of the American Heart Association right here in North Dakota.”
The Red River Valley Heart Ball will be held at the Holiday Inn in Fargo. The celebration begins at 5:00 p.m. with a cocktail reception and silent auction. The event program, which includes a heart healthy dinner, live auction, survivor stories and more will begin at 7:00 p.m., and the evening will continue with a “Pulse” after-party that includes live music by The Front Fenders and dancing at 8:45 p.m.
The Red River Valley Heart Ball is presented locally by Essentia Health. Other local sponsors include Brite-Way Window Cleaning, Inc., North Dakota Soybean Council, WDAY, and The Fargo Forum. Event co-chairs include Yassar Alamanaseer, M.D. and Teresa Bishop, along with Duane L. Keller and Cleone Leach.
