Heart & Stroke Ball – Celebrating 25 Years

Committee members of the 2012 Heart & Stroke Ball are busy planning this year’s gala, set for February 18th at the Kansas City Convention Center.  To celebrate 25 years of saving lives, guests will enjoy an evening of entertainment with a cocktail reception, formal dinner, live & silent auctions and dancing to Lynne Jordan and the Shivers at the Pulse Party.  Proceeds will benefit the lifesaving research, education and community-based initiatives of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.
