American Heart Association presents 2017 Houston Heart Ball
American Heart Association and Houston Heart Ball Chair Dr. Robert C. Robbins, Texas Medical Center President & CEO and member of the AHA Board of Directors, will transform the Hilton Americas ballroom into a “secret garden” wonderland with all the spring blossom trimmings for the annual Houston Heart Ball.
While guests may arrive with coats still in tow, they will be greeted by a warm, indoor haven to celebrate arts, culture and the philanthropic spirit of the Houston community at the annual black tie event. Dr. Robbins has set a goal of raising $2.8 million, the highest goal in the event’s 34-year history.
The Houston Heart Ball is one of Houston’s most anticipated events of the year and is an important fundraising opportunity for American Heart Association. Heart disease remains the No. 1 killer of Americans. Through events like the Houston Heart Ball, the AHA is able to saves lives by making medical discoveries, educating people and changing communities.
