Organizers are pumped for event

CLINTON — The American Heart Association and Clinton residents are asking the community to “go red” for women with heart disease Friday.

The Second Annual Go Red For Women event will be from 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Rastrelli’s Restaurant. Exhibitors’ booths and a silent auction will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m., with the luncheon following.

According to Christine Taylor, from the AHA, heart disease and strokes are the leading cause of death in Clinton County. The county ranks second highest in the state for cardiovascular disease. Beth King, co-chairwoman of the Clinton-based committee for the event, said most women are unaware that heart disease kills one in three women each year.

Friday’s event will offer information and testimonials about heart disease, as well as blood pressure screenings. The luncheon will include a keynote speech from Dr. Ashley Bird from Wagner Pharmacy and a survivor story from Shelia Winslow.

“So I would encourage anyone to come to listen to that,” King said.

The silent auction includes more than 50 packages, with a value of more than $10,000. Taylor said this includes a $500 gift certificate from Neckers Jewelers, local theater tickets, a season pass to the Clinton Symphony, various gift cards at restaurants and much more.

“A nice mix of things,” Taylor said. “We’ve been having fun getting that together.”

All proceeds will go toward cardiovascular research and education. Seats are still available for the luncheon by reservation at a cost of $50 per person and $80 for two people. Those interested should contact Taylor at (309) 737-0339.

“I would encourage them (to come) for their own health as for their mother, their wife, their sister, their daughter, their friends,” Taylor said.
