Jupiter, Florida was tickled red as The Club at Admiral’s
Cove welcomed the
Go Red for Women Luncheon. Go Red for Women is the American
Heart Association’s movement to empower and educate women to
fight their number one killer: heart disease. The red dress
affair celebrates the year-long efforts of Palm Beach County
philanthropists and business leaders to end heart disease in
women in their community.
Women from all over Palm Beach County united for an exciting
and educational day filled with life-saving information,
empowering survivor stories, and heartwarming connections.
2014 Open Your Heart Ambassador, Jeanette Sapulpa, stated,
"Go Red for Women is important because it shows women that
heart disease does not discriminate. It can happen to
anyone, and the three survivor stories shared today showed
Michele Wright, of CBS 12, graciously emceed the luncheon
and shared the moving stories of three local heart disease
survivors. The three survivors were invited on stage and the
room erupted with a heart-felt, standing ovation.
Go Red for Women is the world’s largest network of females
standing together to save women’s lives from heart disease.
Sheryl Williams, Circle of Red member, stated "I feel this
luncheon created a new, alarming awareness in many women
about heart disease. Most of my friends were shocked at the
statistics, especially when they learned that heart disease
is their number one killer." The American Heart Association
aspired to help women understand that heart disease, though
a startling risk, is preventable.
