Some lovely QC ladies got all dolled up for a good cause.
The American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" luncheon educates women about the risks of stroke and heart disease.
It's the 9th year for the event, and the event is hosted by Trinity. Heart disease is the number one killer of women and today ladies learned about how to improve their health while having some fun at the same time.
"There's over 500 women in the ballroom here with their girlfriends enjoying the silent auction and the vendors," says Kate Cuellar, the Regional Director for American Heart Association. "They're also being educated so that the message really hits home to them."
Part of the fun included so called "heart throbs", men dressed in tuxedos who helped by selling items to help raise money and other miscellaneous tasks. CBS4 Anchor Steve Long had the pleasure of being one of the 10 heart throb volunteers.
