A Message from Our Chair
We invite you to join us at the 2011 Atlanta Heart Ball. Our celebration of “Young at Heart ” is especially fitting, given the warm passion and enthusiasm of our volunteers, donors, supporters and guests have shown in making the Heart Ball so special each year.
The funds raised from the Heart Ball directly support our mission to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke by funding local education and research efforts aimed at improving the health of our community. Research has always been at the heart of what we do, and your support of this event allows us to continue to fund the work of the world-renowned researchers and physicians here in the Atlanta area. Thank you for being part of this evening.
It is our privilege to name Nannette Wenger, M.D., as our honoree this year. For more than 50 years, Dr. Wenger has cared for the hearts of Atlantans as a researcher, physician, mentor and teacher, having a lasting impact on the way we treat and prevent heart disease. Congratulations to Dr. Wenger and her family on this honor.
An event like this could not be possible without the work of many dedicated individuals. We would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to Executive Leadership Team. We’d also like to recognize the efforts of our volunteers and financial partners who give their valuable time and dollars to make this work possible.
Finally, we’d like to express our gratitude to the survivors who will share their stories with us at the Heart Ball. Through their words and faces we are truly able to see the impact that heart disease has on our community and why your support is critical to our life-saving work.
We look forward to seeing you at the Heart Ball.
