WHY: Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women. One in three women has some form of cardiovascular disease, and it kills more than 480,000 every year, which is about one every minute. When it comes to risk, about 90 percent of all US women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Go Red For Women celebrates the energy, passion and power that women have and can use to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.
COST: Tickets to the event are $250 per person and available online www.heart.org/houstongoredluncheon or by phone (713-610-5000).
