I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to photograph a fundraising event for the American Heart Association. The Go Red for Women Luncheon offered health screenings, educational sessions, prizes, and a yummy lunch. More than 1,000 Nashville-area women die every year from heart disease! Heart disease kills more women than men every year and 1 in every 2.6 women will be affected by heart disease. However, less than 22 percent of American women view heart disease as their greatest health threat. The luncheon did a great job of not only raising awareness, but also of raising money- The luncheon netted over $300,000 for Go Red for Women. It was an honor to be a part of it. Here are some images from the day to show you just how much fun everyone had.
Everyone had a great time!
CarryAnn from Fresh by CarryAnn donated all of the center pieces for the event. Aren’t they beautiful?!
Cordia Harrington, CEO of the Tennessee Bun Company, was the chair of the event.
The keynote speaker was Laurie Ann Goldman, CEO of Spanx. If you haven’t tried them yet, go buy some today!
At the end of the event, people were asked for donations and then given a red boa- I love how even the men proudly wore their boas!
Lisa Spelta was my contact for the event, and was the mastermind behind the whole luncheon. What a fabulous lady!
