To Fund Research Targeting Heart Disease, the #1 Killer of Women!

Event Details

Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Marriott Marquis Hotel
Washington, DC

An Affair of the Heart Luncheon and Fashion Show is a highly anticipated Washington event, spanning over seven decades. In fact, this event is one of the oldest annual fund-raising events of any nationally recognized non-profit group.

The Women’s Board, comprised of over ninety volunteer members, sponsors the An Affair of the Heart Luncheon and Fashion Show to raise funds aimed at reducing death and disability from heart disease and stroke.

Thanks to the 1,000+ guests, and the generous support of corporations and foundations, the Women’s Board has raised over
$7 million since 2000 to fund substantial AHA research grants from esteemed institutions in the region.

The Women’s Board joins the AHA’s Go Red for Women campaign in bringing a voice to the silent killer of heart disease to help save lives. Go Red for Women needs you to shatter the silence by choosing to speak up about heart disease. Be part of this joint movement, make healthy choices, speak up and spread the word.

By sharing in the mission of the Women’s Board and the Go Red for Women campaign, together we can help save lives.

Be part of this extraordinary day, where fashion meets philanthropy!
