The American Heart Association held their annual Broward Heart Ball on Saturday, May 9th at the Ritz Carlton in Ft. Lauderdale, from 6:00pm – 11:00pm. The Broward Heart Ball is a prestigious black-tie gala that celebrates the organization’s mission and success in “building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.”

Raising just under one million dollars, the American Heart Association’s mission was celebrated and showcased among key community influencers in the social, medical, and business fields across South Florida.

Chairman of this year’s Broward Heart Ball campaign was Mr. Jonathan DeLuca. In partnership with the Executive Leadership Cabinet and 2015 sponsors, including Legacy Sponsors One Beat CPR, the Mariano Foundation, Patriot National Inc. and Open Your Heart Sponsor The Florida Panthers Hockey Club, the American Heart Association continues the fight against heart-and stroke-related illnesses.
