-- The Hilton Head Island Marriot Resort and Spa will host the 2014 Hilton Head Heart Ball fundraiser for the America Heart Association on Saturday, February 1. Festivities will begin at 6 p.m. and people from throughout the Lowcountry are invited to join upwards of 450 community leaders in celebration and support of this worthy cause. Audi Hilton Head is proud to be a sponsor of this year’s event.
"We're proud to once again sponsor the American Heart Association's Heart Ball," said Warner Peacock, President & CEO of New River Auto Mall. "This is a cause that is very personal for us, and we're glad to be able to support such a crucial organization in our community."
The annual Hilton Head Heart Ball will be hosted by Dr. and Mrs. John Batson. Dr. Batson is a graduate of the USC School of Medicine, having completed his internship and residency requirement in Greenville, SC. He holds the unique position of being the only physician in South Carolina to be board-certified in both Sports Medicine and Spine Pain Medicine. He is the owner of Lowcountry Spine and Sport, and has been in private practice for over 5 years.
A cocktail reception and silent auction will kick off this year’s Heart Ball at 6 p.m., with dinner served at 7 p.m. The live auction will take place after dinner. This promises to be an enjoyable evening, bringing community members and local philanthropists together to raise funds to help in the American Heart Association’
s fight against cardiovascular disease.
The Hilton Head Heart Ball campaign raised more than $165,000 last year, which helped the American Heart Association to fund close to $3 million of research and programs throughout South Carolina.
