Power of Red event to benefit women’s heart health

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) Foundation is hosting its 12th annual Power of Red event to raise awareness about heart disease in women and to raise funds to support the Stead Heart and Vascular Center’s Stead Heart for Women Program.

After dinner, this year’s event will feature presentations by Dr. Janet Wei of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center. Guests are encouraged to wear red to support heart health education.

The dinner takes place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, February 21 at the Sheraton Fairplex Hotel, 601 W. McKinley Ave., Pomona.

Tickets are $60 for dinner only or $100 for Power of Red membership, which includes dinner and a special membership gift. For tickets, visit pvhmc.org/powerofred.

The PVHMC Foundation hosts this event annually in support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, which is part of an ongoing effort to educate the public about heart disease in women, and to advocate for preventative services.

All proceeds from the event benefit PVHMC’s Stead Heart for Women, a program that offers information on risk factors, lifestyle modification, diet and exercise, as well as individual support to women in the community.
