Event Funds Will Directly Support the Stead Heart and Vascular Center’s Stead Heart for Women Program

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) Foundation recently held its eleventh annual Power of Red event, which raised funds to support the Stead Heart and Vascular Center’s Stead Heart for Women Program.

More than 100 guests gathered wearing red to enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, wine, and dinner at this year’s “Wear it! Feel it! Live it!” themed event. They participated in a featured “paint night” activity, guided by Raquel Danieri from Purple Easel. Guests also learned about the benefits of art as a therapeutic tool for stress relief and its positive impact on cardiovascular health. Artwork created by children in Pomona Unified School District illustrating the theme “Heart Health: What’s in Your Lunchbox” was also on display and will be displayed year-round throughout PVHMC.

The PVHMC Foundation hosts the Power of Red event annually in support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign, which is part of an ongoing effort to educate the public about heart disease in women and to advocate for preventative services. All proceeds from the event benefit PVHMC’s Stead Heart for Women, a program that offers information on risk factors, lifestyle modification, diet and exercise, as well as individual support to women in the community.
