American Heart Association’s 2018 Corpus Christi Heart Ball

New Orleans is coming to Corpus Christi with the 2018 Corpus Christi Ball. Every year has a new theme, and this year’s theme is going to be “The Heart of New Orleans.” The ball will be at the Congressman Solomon P. Ortiz International Center on Feb. 17 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. There will be dinner, dancing, and guests of honor, and you can enjoy it all for $500 a ticket. You also have the option to purchase a sponsorship starting at $5,000.

A Celebration of Success

The Corpus Christi Heart Ball is a way for the American Heart Association to celebrate all of the strides its made in the fight against heart disease and strokes. These accomplishments can be found in its countless outreach, education, and research endeavors. Through its hard work, heart-related deaths have been in a swift decline in the last five decades, and it hopes to keep that trend going.

Of course, the association wouldn’t be able to accomplish anything without donors and volunteers. Many will be honored at this special event.

You will also get to hear from Hugo Berlanga at the event. He’s the featured heart survivor, and he will share his personal experience with heart disease. It is certain to be a moving evening, but it will be a lot of fun as well.
