SEATTLE HEART BALL Saturday, March 26, 2011
The Heart Ball is the American Heart Association’s signature gala, bringing together over 350 of Seattle’s business, community and medical leaders to celebrate the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association. This year’s event is co-chaired by Dr. Gordon and Trisha Cohen of Seattle Children’s Hospital.
The evening’s program celebrates local survivors and their success stories, highlights the impact of heart disease in children and their families, and efforts by the American Heart Association to advance the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
This year the American Heart Association is proud to name Dr. Stanley Stamm, retired pediatric cardiologist from Seattle Children’s Hospital, as its Golden Heart Honoree. Dr. Stamm is being honored for his dedication to heal and improve the lives of sick children, including starting a summer camp for children with serious illnesses.
Heart Ball guests enjoy an evening of dining, auction, and live entertainment. Proceeds help support the lifesaving research and programs funded by the American Heart Association. Currently, the Heart Association has $6.59 million invested in cardiovascular research grants at various institutions throughout Washington state.
