A Message from Our Chairs
As one of the oldest and most sophisticated social events of the year, the Birmingham Heart Ball lends a voice to heart disease by raising money and awareness for vital community programs, professional education and research that benefits the mission of the American Heart Association, “Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.” This year we are proud to announce Dr. Carol Z. Garrison, President of the University of Alabama at Birmingham as the 2010 Heart Ball Honoree.
The theme of this year’s event is “Abre tu Corazon”, translated from Spanish to Open Your Heart. We sincerely thank all of the corporate sponsors, volunteers and philanthropists who are opening hearts to make the 23rd Heart Ball the best yet.
On behalf of the Heart Guild of Birmingham and Executive Leadership Team, we thank you for your support of the life-saving mission of the American Heart Association. We look forward to celebrating with you at the Heart Ball!
