2015 Heart & Stroke Ball, 100th Anniversary of the New York City Heart Association
Celebrating 100 Lifesaving Years
The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association’s annual Heart & Stroke Ball is a premier event with a long tradition of attracting world-renowned business leaders, physicians, professionals, philanthropists and other prominent community members who help raise critically-needed funds to support the Association’s lifesaving research, education and community-based initiatives.
The 2015 New York City Heart & Stroke Ball will focus on innovation, technology and knowledge, highlighting where we were, where we are and where we are going. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the New York City Heart Association, we will recognize the journey the organization has taken to save lives from heart disease and stroke.
The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke. A pioneering group of physicians and social workers formed the first Association for the Prevention and Relief of Heart Disease in New York City in 1915. In 1924, six cardiologists officially founded our organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of heart disease and stroke.
Big challenges require big thinking and creative solutions. In honor of the 100th anniversary, we would like to invite you to join as we celebrate our volunteers who have made a significant impact in AHA/ ASA history.
