The American Heart Association (AHA) will host its annual Houston Go Red For Women Expo & Luncheon on May 10 at the Hilton Americas in Downtown. This event focuses on educating others on the prevention of heart disease and stroke and living a healthy lifestyle, with proceeds going towards the fight against the No.1 killer of women, heart disease.

Prior to the luncheon, luncheon attendees will be invited to participate in several educational breakout sessions, hosted by Merck and Texas Beef Council. A marketplace and expo will be set up for shopping. A unique silent auction entitled “Purse-onality,” will provide attendees with a chance to bid on designer bags donated by notable Houstonians. Estée Lauder will be present, giving make-up demos as part of Macy’s. There will also be photo opportunities at the HCA sponsored “Picture and a Promise” photo booth. The keynote speaker for the event is Tony and Emmy award winning Actress Christine Baranski, star of the CBS series The Good Wife.

WHY: Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of women. One in three women has some form of cardiovascular disease, and it kills more than 480,000 every year, which is about one every minute. When it comes to risk, about 90 percent of all US women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease. Go Red For Women celebrates the energy, passion and power that women have and can use to band together to wipe out heart disease and stroke.
