In honor of American Heart Month and the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, the Lankenau Heart Institute and Women’s Heart Initiative, both part of Main Line Health, are hosting the Paint the Town Red event on Thursday, February 26 at the Merion Golf Club (450 Ardmore Avenue, Ardmore, PA 19003). The evening will be filled with fun, friends, networking and shopping to help raise awareness of a woman’s risk of heart disease—the number one cause of death in women—and to encourage women to take charge of their heart health.
At the event, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the Lankenau Heart Institute’s team of female cardiologists, savor heart-healthy hors d’oeuvres, and shop to their heart’s content with many local vendors, including Bella Oliva, Ellie Boutique, Full Spirited Flavors, Gingy’s Boutique, Heigh Ho Silver, Life’s Patina, Louella, Patricia Lynch Inc, Stephanie Parks Cowgill Designs, Stitch Haus, Sweet Ashley's Chocolates, The Perfect Gift, Trish McEvoy Cosmetics and Visual Effects Jewelry. Melissa Jacobs, Main Line Today reporter, will also be doing interviews with the physicians and attendees on the “Red Carpet”.
Registration is required for this event and admission is $40. To register, visit mainlinehealth.org/paintthetownred.
