American Heart Association celebration recognizes importance of local supporters and volunteers

The 2023 Midlands Heart Ball will be held Friday, March 3 at the Pastides Alumni Center. The annual gala is a culmination of the year-round American Heart Association Heart of the Midlands campaign, an initiative uniting community leaders to invest and make an impact in improving CPR education, controlling blood pressure, improving nutrition security, and fighting the tobacco and vaping crisis. The Heart Ball marks a moment in time to reflect, honor and celebrate the progress made through the determination, dedication and passion of all who support the Heart of the Midlands.

Philip Simoneaux, CPA, CFP® Director of Planning, Family Office Services for Southeastern Freight Lines, will serve as the Chairperson for the 2023 Midlands Heart Ball.

“I am honored to serve as the 2023 Midlands Heart Ball Chairman,” said Simoneaux. “The American Heart Association has made a great deal of progress in the fight against heart disease and stroke, but there is still much work to be done. I look forward to joining forces with other local leaders as we work to put an end to the No. 1 health threat in our community.”

The 2023 Midlands Heart Ball’s special honoree Jackson Bell will join patrons at the event, where attendees will enjoy a fabulous evening of dining, dancing to Bout Time Band and an exciting auction to help raise funds and awareness of heart diseases and stroke.

The Heart of the Midlands campaign and the Heart Ball support the Association’s 2024 Health Equity Impact Goal, which aims to reduce barriers to health care access and quality.
