The Southern Coast Heart Ball will bring together more than 400 guests from the corporate, philanthropic and medical communities to celebrate 2018’s accomplishments while raising funds to further the AHA’s mission.
Guests will enjoy an evening of dining, dancing and live entertainment as well as live and silent auctions.
The annual black-tie gala, chaired by Catherine Donaldson of Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty, will celebrate life-saving advances made in the Lowcountry over the last 22 years. Donaldson is chairing in honor of her husband, who served in the U.S. Army Reserves and died of a heart attack in 2016.
The event will celebrate the heart association’s mission, supporters and volunteers while honoring lives saved or improved because of the work of the AHA and the generosity of the Lowcountry and Savannah communities. In addition, guests will hear the story of Lilly Cochran, who was born with several congenital heart defects. The event also will honor her father, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, who had heart disease.
