Annual ball raises funds to fight heart disease

January 23, 2014 by  

The Mercer County Heart Ball is taking place in Hermitage this February. Proceeds from the event will benefit the American Heart Association.

The annual event is set to feature dinner, dancing, and live and silent auctions. Local businesses and individuals are being encouraged to donate items for the auctions.
Representatives from the Heart Association will also be on hand to provide health information to guests.

The money raised at the ball will go towards funding for cardiovascular research. The goal of the American Heart Association is to lower the chance of dying from heart disease and stroke by 20 percent; events such as this help to raise a lot of money towards that goal.

Many of those businesses who donate items for the auctions will no doubt want to let their current customers know about their gesture and may wish to encourage many of them to attend this fundraiser. This may include investing in services such as poster and flyer printing from Hermitage printing companies. For example, a flyer can be inserted into a regular mailing such as a bill sent out to customers. Invitations may also be created and sent to those who have attended such events in the past.

The ball will be held at the Avalon Golf and Country Club in Buhl Park on February 8 from 6:00 – 11:00 PM. Tickets are $100 each. For more info on the evening’s events, contact Bruce Turner at 330-318-1006.
