2016 Charleston WV Heart Ball
The Charleston WV Heart Ball will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2016! This elite black tie optional event features prominent members of the health, philanthropic and local business communities.
What is the Heart Ball?
The American Heart Association Heart Ball is a nationwide event that celebrates our mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
For more than 15 years, the Greater Charleston Heart Ball has promoted the AHA’s mission on a local level, and thanks to our donors’ support, we’ve seen inspiring advances in the fight against heart- and stroke-related illnesses. This year, we won’t just inspire change. We’ll ignite it.
Together, we can spark awareness, compassion and a deeper understanding of the nation’s deadliest killer. We will ignite that spark to inspire others and unite our community toward a happier, healthier future. But we can’t rekindle that movement alone.
Funds raised through the Heart Ball help build programs in AHA’s mission-inspired programs. By supporting the 2016 Charleston Heart Ball you are helping us continue education and research in our community.
