Community Events: Heart Ball

Patrons at the annual Tacoma Heart Ball event made a toast to good health, great volunteers, and lifesaving accomplishments on February 20 at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center. The black-tie event welcomed 300 distinguished guests and raised $112,000. Proceeds from the Heart Ball support the local American Heart Association by providing funding for local initiatives and programs that address childhood obesity, research funding, and improving quality of patient care at local hospitals.
