The Go Red for Women Luncheon and Fashion show was put on by the Massachusetts chapter of the American Heart Association. This cause is dear to me as it is the platform of the Mrs. International Pageant, and I have learned so much about Heart Disease, and also being affected by it personally when my father was diagnosed with high blood pressure.
There were many local celebrities from tv and radio as well as several of the Go Red Ladies from the 2009 Campaign. It was wonderful to meet these ladies especially and to hear their individual stories of how and why they became invovled in this important cause. There was a 12 year old who had undergone open heart surgery, a woman who was a survivor of several cancers as well as heart disease running in her family, to a woman who was there because her father-in-law suffered from heart disease.
Fashions were provided by the incredible designer Sara Campbell who has boutiques located in Boston and Wellesley.
I look forward to working on more projects with this organization, and am in the process of trying to organize a team at work to walk in the 2010 Heart Walk later this year! Till then, Go Red!
