Be Bold, Go Red, Girl’s Night Out


Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the United States? Did you know that black women are at the highest risk of developing this disease? While these facts are upsetting, the steps we need to take to reduce our risk are simple. Here’s a great fact sheet and action plan geared towards black women. Please share these with other women (and men) that you know so we can all lead healthier lives.

Last year, I was honored to attend the 2nd Annual Girls Night Out, Go Red for Women event in Chicago and learn more about ways to promote heart healthiness. Can’t you tell?

This year, it will be no different, and I’m still honored.

If you are in the Chicagoland area, Be Bold. Go Red and join B96, 104.3 K-HITS and Bath & Body Works to celebrate the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement on Thursday, February 28, from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Alhambra Palace Restaurant, located at 1240 West Randolph Street in Chicago.. A $35 VIP Ticket includes red carpet treatment, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, swag bag filled with goodies, mini spa services, fashion show and more! Click here to get your ticket! 
All ticket sale proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign. Come and walk the red carpet with your best girl or guy friends and don’t forget to wear red!
I can give away one ticket to one of my readers who would love to come through and show their support as well. Here’s what you have to do:

    I never was aware of Heart Disease until I met a good blogging friend name Raijean. Until I met her, I never really paid attention of the facts about heart disease. It is important to me now, because I have a kid to want to be as healthy to take care of her.

    I was not aware of it until I saw this post. However, if our hearts are not healthy…we are not healthy.

    Heart health is important to me because high blood pressure runs in my family. Therefore it is important to keep an eye on it now.
