On the Edge of Awareness - GO RED!
Chris and I have been involved with the American Heart Association and the GO Red for women campaign over the last 18 months. We have photographed countless red dresses, models and flower arrangements as well as made posters and flyers for their 2 big fundraisers. On the Edge of Awareness took place last week at The Cliff House Resort and Spa. Each table was decorated with a red shoe floral arrangement donated by area florists and then they were judged and awared various project redshoe honors. It was beautifully decorated and a wonderful event. The Go Red for Women campaign goal is to raise awareness of women's risk of heart disease. It is the number 1 killer of women in this country and events like this help promote awareness and it did raise over $73,000 for research! Congrats to Chairwoman Denise Rubin, owner of On The Marsh Restaurant for all her hard work this year and Danie Connelly of Absolutely Perfect, she was the AMA's Crystal Heart Award receipient.
