Annual Heart Luncheon Scheduled for February 23rd at Field Arts & Events Hall
The Red, Set, Go! Heart Luncheon is held each February – this year will be the 16th annual – on February 23rd, 2024.
The luncheon is two-fold – it raises awareness about the critical issue of heart health for women on the Olympic Peninsula, and is the primary fundraising event for the OMC Heart Center.
The educational lunch promotes that the key to eradicating heart disease is education. “The purpose of our event is to inspire women to become more educated to improve their heart health, “ said OMC Heart Center Director Dr. Kara Urnes.
The Red, Set, Go Luncheon has always been about saving lives.
Not only is the event educational, providing valuable education on how to prevent heart disease, it has raised money to purchase life-saving equipment.
“One of the great thing about sponsoring this event is that it is a great opportunity for companies and organizations to send their female employees to the event, since the theme of the event is women’s health,” said Red, Set, Go Chair Karen Rogers.
Funds from the 2023 event went towards purchasing a mobile c-arm x-ray unit. The unit provides the support needed for new leadless pacemaker program.
