Red, Set, Go Heart Luncheon

Record Money Raised For Olympic Medical Center Foundation Red, Set, Go! Heart Luncheon

The Olympic Medical Center Foundation's Red, Set, Go! Heart Luncheon presented by the Jamestown S'Klallam tribe raised a record $61,000 on Friday, as over 270 people gathered at Vern Burton Community Center to learn how to prevent heart disease.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the purchase of devices that give immediate feedback on the quality of compression and ventilator support during a code blue situation. "Once again, we were able to raise money for something that will save lives," said event chair Karen Rogers.

"Because of our sponsors, 100 percent of all money raised at the luncheon itself will go towards the purchase of the new equipment," said Foundation Executive Director Bruce Skinner. 

Speakers at the event included local cardiologist Dr. Kara Urnes, Dr. Fran Broyles of Swedish Medical Center, and Betsy Schulz, who delivered the annual heart disease "survivor" story. You can view Dr. Fran Broyles presentation here.

Education Awareness

The educational lunch promotes that the key to eradicating heart disease is education. "The purpose of our event is to inspire women to learn how to improve their heart health. Many women are surprised to learn that heart disease is the number one killer of women," said Rogers.

"We are still receiving donations towards the purchase of the compression devices," said Skinner. "People interested in contributing can contact our office at 360-417-7144."
