The Heart Ball

Raises funds for heart research, health education

Hundreds of corporate and medical professionals will gather for An Evening in Wonderland at the 21st annual Heart Ball on Saturday, February 2, 2013. This black tie event celebrates the breakthroughs in cardiovascular research, while raising funds to reduce the impact of heart disease and stroke – the No. 1 and No. 4 killers of men and women.

“This is one of our largest and most important events,” said Courtney Burge, Heart Ball Director for the American Heart Association. “During the evening, our donors and supporters will see the results of our research, advocacy and educational programs at work.”

Guests of the evening will enjoy a cocktail reception, a heart-healthy dinner, silent and live auction opportunities and live music by Burning Las Vegas. All proceeds from the Heart Ball support the American Heart Association, which funds public and professional education, advocacy and scientific research. Research funded by the association has yielded important discoveries such as CPR, life-extending drugs, pacemakers, bypass surgery, surgical techniques to repair heart defects and more.

The Heart Ball is an important component of the American Heart Association’s sweeping national goal: to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent and to reduce deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20 percent by the year 2020.

The Heart Ball will be held at the Louisville Marriott Downtown, and tickets are at $500 per person. Tables of 10 are also available, and donations are still being accepted for its auction. For tickets, or to make a donation, visit

The Heart Ball is sponsored by the Frazier Family Foundation, Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs, WLKY, Her Scene Magazine, WHAS Radio, IGE Media, and VEST Advertising. The Heart Ball is chaired by Mark Carter, CEO of Passport Health Plan, and will be emceed by Monica Hardin of WLKY.
