-- Cincy Chic is painting the town red in the name of heart health on February 9! The online women’s publication is teaming up with the American Heart Association for its fifth annual “Lady in Red” event, which promises record-breaking attendance.
This fashionable fundraiser, which will attract 700-1000 attendees, will be held at Macy’s Fountain Place from 6-9 p.m. on February 9. Guests will celebrate heart health in red cocktail attire, while enjoying red cocktails, light bites, and several fun-filled fundraising activities. There will also be a “Go-Red”-inspired fashion show by Macy’s and Mi Salon Spa.
“As the Go Red For Women campaign enters its 10th year, the movement has made huge strides in the health of women across the country,” says Lori Fovel of the Go Red For Women campaign. “In fact, statistics show that women who joined the Go Red movement, made at least one positive change in their health–whether it be losing weight, increasing their exercise, or quitting smoking. Locally, Greater Cincinnati is showing the same positive results, thanks to great supporters like Cincy Chic. Through annual events like Lady in Red, we are able to reach a large demographic of women to raise awareness that heart disease is the number one killer of women.”
“Heart disease is the number one killer of American women—but it doesn't have to be,” says Amy Scalia, publisher of Cincy Chic. “As a women’s publication, we’re leveraging our community of 22,000 local ladies to learn about heart health awareness at a fun and fashionable affair.”
Tickets for this event are $10 per person, and includes two drink tickets, complimentary swag bag, and a 20% discount at Macy’s. All proceeds from the fundraising activities and silent auction will benefit the American Heart Association “Go Red for Women” campaign. Learn more, RSVP and donate at cincychic.com/
