According to 2018 Go Red For Women Luncheon Co-Chair Lisa Cooley,
“Go Red for Women is the American Heart Association’s movement to celebrate the energy, passion and power of women to stand together to wipe out the #1 killer of women and men. The Go Red for Women Luncheon is the cornerstone event of the Go Red for Women movement.
“This empowering event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles and raising awareness through the support of the Dallas community to fund education and research of heart related science in women.
“My wish along with my Co-Chair Janelle Walker is to get more women and men involved in the event on Friday, February 23, at the Omni Dallas. Supporting the Go Red for Women Luncheon allows corporations and individuals to come together to raise awareness and fund research, especially in women.
“The luncheon is an opportunity to share this educational message with women’s leadership groups, executives, neighbors or friends and anyone who can impact the life of a woman by lending a voice for heart health.
“For every $1 raised, 90 cents directly funds research and education for heart health. I believe that is money well spent.”
