Red’s the word at the “Go Red For Women Luncheon” to raise awareness and funds for the American Heart Association. Tables were decorated with red tablecloths and duponi silk red dress forms, with life-sized red dress cutouts placed throughout the event.
Holley Haag served as 2015 Circle of Red Chair, and Katie Moore of WWL-TV served as Master of Ceremonies. Luncheon speakers included survivors Sharon Heno and Natasha Lewis, and Elizabeth Foti, the mother of a child with a congenital heart defect.
Entertainment included interactive sponsor booths, health stations, a photo area, a Survivor Casting Call, Passion Speakers, a Fashion Strut and a Purseanality auction with purses and bags filled with favorite items and gift certificates to New Orleans movers and shakers. Purseanalities were donated by Julie Bland, Liz Copeland, Margo Dubos, Lana Duke, Priscilla Lawrence, Betsie Gambel, Diane Lyons, Leora Madden, Olivia Manning, Beverley Matheney, Tiki McIntyre, the New Orleans Moms Blog and St. Charles Avenue editor Morgan Packard.
Go Red For Women’s Circle of Red is a passionate group dedicated to making an impact in our community’s fight against heart disease and is invited to attend exclusive gatherings to hear first-hand what their dollars and the American Heart Association are doing to make a difference.
