Check back for updates on the 9th Annual Heart & Soul Benefit for the American Heart Association! Date, time, ticket info and more will be posted as details become available for our 2013 event.
Last year’s Heart & Soul Benefit was one of the largest, most successful fundraising events for the American Heart Association in Middle Tennessee.
”The Heart & Soul Benefit started nine years ago in the least extraordinary of ways,” says Kate Hegge, founder of Heart & Soul. “It began in 2004 with about 20 people sharing a low-key evening of wine and home-cooked food at one of my friend’s houses, and now—amazingly—has evolved into nearly 500 life-loving Nashvillians sampling wines, live music, and fantastic Lofts at Werthan Mills. Cardiovascular disease has become a very personal issue for me, and has touched my family and friends in dramatic ways, taking us through open-heart surgery, stent placement, and stroke. That’s why, eight years ago, I started this annual benefit and why we continue to present it each year. We want to help the American Heart Association battle something so preventable and so treatable—a disease that has no right to be the #1 killer of Nashvillians and Americans.”
ABOUT THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION
Since 1949, the American Heart Association has invested more than $3.3 billion in heart disease and stroke research. It is second only to the federal government as a source of non-industry funding for cardiovascular and stroke research. The American Heart Association has funded major breakthroughs such as the first artificial heart valve, techniques and standards for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), implantable pacemakers, treatment for infant respiratory distress syndrome, cholesterol inhibitors, and microsurgery and drug-coated stents. Association-funded research has resulted in Nobel Prizes for seven researchers, most recently in 2011. To learn more, please visit www.heart.org.
