The American Heart Association's
11th Annual Heart of the Hamptons Gala
Raises Nearly $500,000


Long Island, NY, July 10, 2007 - On a warm and breezy Saturday evening, close to 500 people traveled to Bridgehampton to attend the American Heart Association's 11th Annual Heart of the Hamptons Gala. This year's event which was hosted on the grounds of the Hayground School was the American Heart Association's biggest yet raising nearly $500,000.

This year's Gala Honorees: Dr. O. Wayne Isom, Professor and Chairman, Dep't of Cardiothoracic Surgery Weill Cornell Medical Center and New York - Presbyterian Hospital and Peter G. Peterson, Sr. Chairman, The Blackstone Group along with his wife Joan Ganz Cooney, Co-Founder of Sesame Workshop, Originator of Sesame Street spoke eloquently about their dedication to the mission of the American Heart Association to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

The evening went into full swing with the entertainment portion of the night featuring the musical talent of Uptown - A Soul Systems Orchestra Band. The crowd was then treated to two very energetic demonstrations. The National Double Dutch League and Long Island Gymnasts displayed their extraordinary skills to those in attendance.

The focus of this year's Gala was "Children's Health". Heart defects are the leading cause of death in the first year of life and each year, tens of thousands of children are born with some sort of heart defect" said Ellen Bitton, Heart of the Hamptons Event Chair. "Childhood obesity is another epidemic taking over our children's lives and this generation may be the first to live shorter lives than their parents".
