Grab your best cocktail dress and your favorite pair of sneakers for a celebration of heart health, sisterhood and dancing during the Go Red For Women Premiere Party on Nov. 2nd from 7-10 p.m. This event, hosted by the American Heart Association, will be held at the Community House, located at 380 South Bates Street in Birmingham. The premiere party is free with RSVP.
In celebration of the campaign’s 10th anniversary, attendees will preview the Go Red For Women Declaration Video, which captures the evolution and passion of the lifesaving movement since 2004. In addition, the evening features contemporary dance lessons, survivor stories and strolling hors d’oeuvres. Roop Raj, Fox 2 News personality, will host this affair.
“The Go Red Premiere Party shines a spotlight on the critical issue of women and heart disease in a lively and engaging way,” said Stefanie Worth, senior community health director for the southeast Michigan American Heart Association. “By offering dance lessons, we make physical activity fun. Hearing from survivors’ offers hope to those living with heart disease and serves as a warning bell for others who might not even know they’re at risk,” said Worth.
“Heart disease is very important, and staying active is an easy way to fight it,” said Tanya Hughes, heart attack survivor and an American Heart Association volunteer. “We’re going to reach people who don’t normally attend our events. I’m sure this fun event will inspire them to become active in their daily life and within the Association. I want to motivate, encourage and inspire the hearts of people by showing them that healthy living really is easy and fun,” said Hughes.
Go Red For Women Premiere Parties are taking place nationally to celebrate the campaign’s achievements and educate women about their number one health issue. “With heart disease being the number one killer of women, we want people to walk away from the party with both resources and belief that they can live healthier, starting today,” said Worth.
