The American Heart and American Stroke Association presents the 14th Annual Santa Barbara Heart Beach Ball

To benefit the Healthy Futures Program, an initiative to fight childhood obesity in Santa Barbara

(Santa Barbara)- The American Heart and American Stroke Association will proudly host the 15th annual Santa Barbara Heart Ball on Saturday, May 3rd 2014

at the Four Seasons Biltmore Coral Casino. The event will commence at 6pm with a cocktail reception and Adult Science Night followed by a silent auction, dinner and dancing.

The Heart Beach Ball will celebrate the American Heart Association’s mission, philanthropists and lives impacted by cardiovascular disease. Proceeds from the

event will benefit the AHA’s Healthy Futures Program. For the second consecutive year, the Heart Ball will highlight the accomplishments of the Healthy Futures

Program, aimed to empower and inspire students and their familes to lead healthy lives through proper nutrition. Hundreds of students in Santa Barbara County

have already been impacted through the efforts of this program.

As child obesity has tripled in children between the ages of 6 and 17, it is more crucial than ever to raise awareness and bring back the health of America’s children.

Currently, in Santa Barbara County, only 51.5% of children between the ages of 2-11 and 16.9% of teens ages 12-17 ate the recommended servings of fruit and vegetables daily.

Dressed in white cocktail attire, Santa Barbara community leaders will enjoy an evening of grandeur and will join the fight against the leading causes of death in Santa Barbara and in our nation.

The event is sponsored locally by: Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, Wells Fargo, BMW Santa Barbara, St. George Associates Bartlett, Pringle & Wolf, LLP, Ron & Marlys Boehm, Cottage Health System, Cox Communications, Marborg Industries, Montecito Bank & Trust, Samsum Clinic John Westwick, Bella Vista Designs, Inc., Boone Graphics and Foley Wines.
