Go Red For Women

Misconceptions about heart disease and women could be putting you at risk. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, claiming one life per minute.

Go Red For Women is a national initiative aimed at uniting women and their friends in the fight against heart disease. Women are becoming better educated and learning the facts about how heart disease affects women and men differently and how to take steps to address their risk for a heart attack. Continued education and awareness is crucial for women to fight this deadly disease.

Comedienne Kat Simmons will provide the keynote address. The event will also include a silent auction and exhibit booths.

This is the 11th year Shannon has sponsored the luncheon. Reserved tables are $1,000 and individual tickets are $50 each, and they will be available through the end of January. To purchase tickets or for more information, please call 325-481-6300. All proceeds from the luncheon help advance educational outreach and research programs of the American Heart Association.

Please join us for the 2017 Go Red For Women Luncheon
Wednesday, Feb. 1
