Join us for an elegant, evening celebration of our work and mission, our donors and volunteers, and — most importantly — the lives saved and improved because of everyone’s effort. The Inaugural Los Angeles Heart & Stroke Ball promises to be an engaging evening of fun and passion.
We are bringing community and philanthropic leaders together to celebrate all that we’ve been able to accomplish while continuing to fund inspiring new strategies, programs and tools, innovations and ideas to build a heart-healthy community in Los Angeles for our children, their future, and generations to come.
