Ashley Russo to Host American Heart Association's "PurseNalities" Auction
President & Emmy® award-winning executive producer of ASR Media Productions and host of The PEAK TV will emcee the event supporting Go Red for Women
"Women are at risk just as much as men are when it comes to heart disease and stroke. We, as women, must educate ourselves on risks and prevention,"
Designer purses and accessories donated by more than 38 local business and community leaders will be up for auction to the highest bidder. Proceeds from the event will benefit the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement and raise awareness about heart disease in women. Heart disease and stroke kill one in three women, and more women than men die every year from heart disease and stroke. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. To learn more, visit www.GoRedforWomen.org
