A Celebration of creating and sharing. Our evening celebrates: our work and mission; our donors and volunteers; and — most importantly — the lives saved and improved because of everyone’s effort. The Heart Ball promises to be an engaging evening of fun and passion bringing community and philanthropic leers together. Last year, our Heart Ball campaign raised just over $51 million nation-wide allowing us to fund over $123 millon of research and programs across the country and in your community.
We are excited that this year's Heart Ball Honoree Penny Chenery, the first lady of horse racing and a heart disease survivor will be joining us for the evening. The Walt Disney film based on her life and that of Secretariat, filmed in Kentucky, will be in theaters Fall of 2010.
