The Northwest Indiana Heart of Gold Gala, attended by more than 600 c-suite executives and individuals from Northwest Indiana's business, medical and social communities, celebrates an evening of inspiration and networking in a powerful atmosphere that touches 1 in 2 lives, as it benefits the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association. The evening's black-tie festivities begin with a pre-event reception that includes a stellar silent auction and premium open cocktail hour, followed by an elegant dinner and inspiring program. The night ends with our renowned post-gathering with grand dessert display and gourmet coffee bar. The post-gathering will immediately follow the program for continued networking and expanded conversation opportunities.
It is a night you don't want to miss!
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) rank as America's Number 1 killer while stroke is the number 5 cause of death. Nearly 2,200 Americans die of CVD each day - that is one person every 39 seconds. Please join the American Heart Association in building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke by celebrating our 16th Anniversary of the Northwest Indiana Heart of Gold Gala, on April 14, 2018.
Our mission is made possible by our generous donors and volunteers. Since 1949, we have invested billions of dollars in research, currently we have over $18 million dollars in active research in Illinois. The American Heart Association funded breakthroughs include the first artificial heart valve, techniques and standards for CPR, pacemakers, cholesterol drugs and drug coated stents.
Please join us at the Northwest Indiana Heart of Gold Gala and share with us your "why."
