The 2015 Go Red For Women Luncheon was held Feb. 27, at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina. The luncheon is the celebratory event for the American Heart Association’s annual Go Red campaign. For many, the luncheon is a life-changing experience. The luncheon focuses on three areas to support the fight against heart disease in women: heightening awareness of the issue, creating a passionate call-to-action and generating funds to support education and research. The 2014 luncheon drew over 650 people, raising almost $750,000 for heart disease and stroke research.
The American Heart Association also honored its 2015 Legendary Women of the Heart at the event. This year’s Legendary Women are Dixie Unruh, Karen Cohn, Gaby Sulpizio, Sally Thornton and Ronne Froman Blue.
This year’s campaign chair is Debbie Turner. Barbara-Lee Edwards of KFMB-CBS 8 again served as Go Red For Women Luncheon Mistress of Ceremonies.
