Go Red For Women was created in 2004 by the American Heart Association. Its goal is to bring awareness that heart disease as the number one killer of women, claiming the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year.
The American Heart Association will also be on on site to answer any questions the party goers may have about their heart health.
