According to 2013 Go Red for Women Co-chairs Kate Rose Marquez and Virginia Rose:
“Go Red for Women, February 1, 2013 at The Anatole, benefiting The American Heart Association. Heart disease is the number one killer of women, and yet many people believe this is a “man’s” disease. Go Red for Women is the annual luncheon that seeks to educate and inspire women to take control of their health, exercise and affect true lifestyle changes that lead to an active and longer life. Traditionally, this event has been held the first week of June and has had tremendous corporate support. However, individuals and the decision makers at foundations often consider the charitable season over by Memorial Day and many dollars that could support this event go untapped because of timing.
“By moving the event to February 1, we are in line with the traditional “Heart Health” month, February, and we are giving donors who have so generously supported women’s health issues in Dallas in the past the opportunity to support the American Heart Association and it’s research to further women’s heart health.
“We would love to create a meaningful sponsorship opportunity for an individual or foundation. And of course, additional corporate donors are welcome!”
