2013 Cape Fear Heart Ball February 9th

The American Heart Association’s Cape Fear Heart Ball will be held Saturday, February 9, 2013, at the Wilmington Convention Center. This annual black tie event celebrates the organization’s mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular disease and stroke and raises funds to support research and education.
This year’s event is themed The Crystal Heart Ball, marking the gala’s 15th anniversary of funding life saving research in the Cape Fear. The red carpet rolls out for this year’s event at 6:00 p.m. with an incredible silent auction and cocktail reception.  Over 450 guests representing the Cape Fear’s top business, medical, civic and social leaders will enjoy an exciting gourmet dinner, live auction and musical entertainment by Jack Jack 180 beginning at 7:30 p.m. WECT anchor Frances Weller will serve as event emcee. The evening will also feature an Open Your Heart video, highlighting Cape Fear area cardiovascular and stroke survivors.
The 2013 Cape Fear Heart Ball, chaired by Beth Quinn of First Citizens Bank and Lannin Kerry of Brunswick Forest, is one of the largest fundraising events for the American Heart Association. The 2013 Heart Ball hopes to raise over $150,000 to fight our nation’s No. 1 killer, cardiovascular disease. Research funded by the American Heart Association has yielded important discoveries and new lifesaving techniques such as CPR, life-extending drugs, pacemakers, bypass surgery and surgical techniques to repair heart defects.
