Join me and other members of the American Heart Association‘s young professionals’ organization, PULSE for the 3rd annual Paint the Town Red gala at the Meridian House. This year’s event is once again being held at the beautiful and historic, Meridian House, and is chaired by Jena Belinkie, Jennifer Kirstein Czekaj, Lauren Grunley and Wesley Adams Preuss.
PULSE is a group of young professionals who support the American Heart Association’s work to save lives, to fight heart diseases, and to educate our peers about heart health, preventing cardiovascular diseases, the impact of childhood obesity, and living healthier lives. While much awareness has been raised for Breast Cancer and other life threatening illnesses, many are not aware that the number one killer of men and women in the United States is heart disease.
In particular, PULSE hosts events to help raise money for the Association’s “Recess” initiative, which is focused on fighting childhood obesity. Recent research suggests that if the epidemic of childhood obesity continues to increase, the average American lifespan could be reduced by two to five years, which would mean that the current generation of children would be the first in history to live shorter lives than their parents.
Paint the Town Red is a very special evening featuring cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music, dancing, and a spectacular silent auction. Come help us Paint The Town Red in “red tie” cocktail attire or by wearing your favorite red accessory. Wear red boldly to show your support for our Mission—to prevent heart diseases and stroke.Valet parking is available, and the centrally located Meridian House is just a few blocks from the U Street Corridor and Adams Morgan. This amazing event will sell out quickly, so don’t miss your chance to join us and to help fight heart disease!
