Charity Lives at the American Heart Associations OC Heart Ball!
On Saturday May 14, 2011 the Charity Lives Campaign supported the American Heart Associations Annual Orange County Heart Ball held at the exquisite Balboa Bay Club and Resort in Newport Beach, California. The 30th Anniversary of the flagship fundraiser gala hosted 400+ community and social leaders as they came together to enjoy an elegant night of inspirations, celebrations, and support for the American Heart association and their fight against cardiovascular disease in America.
Taking advantage of the beautiful California weather the 2011 Heart Ball kicked off with a classic courtyard reception social. Guests had the chance to walk the red carpet, enjoy cheese and wine decors, and explore a vast range of silent auction items showcasing the experiences of Orange County luxuries. The evening of cocktails, conversations, and connections followed suit into the Balboa Bay Club Ballroom as the American Heart Association’s dinner gala and ceremony ensued.
2011 Heart Ball Chairman Michael Mussallem mc’d the night’s ceremonies and highlighted the evening by honoring some of Orange County’s ‘Heart Heroes’ including Dr. Aidan Raney of Hoag Heart Valve Center, Dr. Jagat Narula of the Cardiovascular Center and Memorial Heart & Vascular Institute, and baby Myka Eliers who before the age of 11months has undergone two open-heart surgeries. The support for the American Heart Association’s honorable missions continued as an engaging live auction left no doubt why the OC Heart Ball was trademark fundraising event in the fight against cardiovascular. Open spirits, dancing, and live entertainment closed off what was a great and memorable night.
