Open Your Heart

Open your Heart is an opportunity in the Luncheon where you can Make It Your Mission to save lives and support Go Red For Women® by making a lifesaving donation. Chances are that you know a woman, man or child who has suffered from heart disease. This is one way that you can honor this survivor. Make a difference by giving a donation that will fund programs and research that will make living healthy a reality for women in your community and across the country. Some companies match employee donations. This could double the donation that you make at the luncheon.

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting cardiovascular diseases. The Association funds more cardiovascular research than any U.S. organization outside the government. Since 1949, we have invested more than $3.3 billion in the heart of our country. Each year, 22.5 million volunteers and donors work with us to create better lives by teaching, supporting and studying the needs of those at risk. But we cannot do it alone.
