Heart Ball

One of my favorite yearly events in the Heart Ball – a night to get dressed up, network with some of the area’s best and brightest business professionals and community figures, and see an outpouring of generosity working towards eradicating heart disease and stroke.

I had the fun job of emceeing the silent auction room, and as the night wore on, my role became increasingly important. With over 65 silent auction prize packages and over 550 attendees, bidding wars were taking place at every corner. I did my best to draw guests into the silent auction room and keep them engaged and motivated using my new key phrase “bid high, bid often!”. I had my eyes on quite a few items, however, my responsibilities required that I focused my attention on keeping the time (2 minutes remaining!).

The program of the event featured the touching stories of two prominent men in the community, their realization of their declining heart health and the stellar care they received in acting fast. It is such a testament to how important the work that the American Heart Association is doing to continue to fund research and development.

Overall, the night was a fabulous success and I was so glad to have been a part of it!
