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 leaders 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.
Jessica James - 2012 Survivor
Jessica was born with a heart defect 17 years ago. They told our family that until recently they wouldn't have been able to save her. She had her first open heart surgery at the age of two weeks and over the years she has had to endure three more surgeries to repair her heart and she will have more in the future. Right now Jessica is doing well and to look at her she looks like every other 17-year old girl. We can't thank YOU and the American Heart and American Stroke Association enough because without the money you donated the research that saved Jessica's life wouldn't exist.
