The annual Go Red for Women Luncheon, sponsored by the American Heart Association, will be held Friday at the Chattanooga Convention Center.
There will be breakout sessions with local companies and a silent auction from 9:30 -11:30 a.m. The luncheon with fashion show and survivor testimonials, by ticket only, will begin at 11:30 a.m.
The Go Red for Women movement works to educate the fact that more women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. Unfortunately, heart disease is often silent, hidden and misunderstood.
The luncheon is part of the Go Red for Women movement that encourages local women to take charge of their heart health by making it a top priority so they can live stronger, longer lives. The luncheon begins with a silent auction, VIP Lounge sponsored by Chattanooga Allergy Clinic, a Picture and a Promise Photo Booth sponsored by Tennessee Valley Credit Union, and breakout sessions presented by Erlanger Health System, Check Into Cash and Mayfield Dairy Farms, Inc. Heart and stroke survivors can tell their stories on the Red Couch presented by EPB Fiber Optics and a Patron Party sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee will follow the event. At 11:30 a.m., the ticketed heart-healthy luncheon program begins with the stories of local women affected personally by heart disease followed by a Fashion Show sponsored by local boutiques.
The Go Red for Women movement is nationally sponsored by Macy’s and the Local Cause Sponsor is Erlanger Health System.
