Wine, Dine and Design on Feb. 7

ASHLAND — Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital will host Wine, Dine and Design from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 7 at the Pendleton Art Center, 1537 Winchester Ave., in Ashland.

Wine, Dine and Design is a fundraiser open to both men and women in recognition of Go Red for Women and the 11th annual National Wear Red Day.

The event includes wine tastings by Rock Springs Winery, dinner by Chef Andy Moore and the opportunity for participants to paint with a local artist and to take home their creations. The event will also feature  heart health tips from OLBH interventional cardiologist Michele Friday, M.D. The cost of the event is $40 per person with all proceeds benefiting the American Heart Association.

“With Wine, Dine and Design, both men and women can come enjoy a unique evening of heart-healthy food, drink and entertainment,” Friday said. “Those who attend this event are not just benefiting themselves, but are standing up to support the cause of fighting heart disease and educating our community on recognizing the disease early. We hope everyone puts on their red clothing and joins us."

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. It is the leading cause of death for men and women as well as being the leading cause of death for people of most ethnicities in the United States, including African Americans, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Hispanics, and whites. Heart disease claims more female lives than all forms of cancer combined. Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia all rank near the top of states that have the most deaths due to heart disease.

Ten years ago, the AHA created Go Red For Women, a network of women dedicated to education, support, and research. Since then, the AHA has educated millions of women on the dangers of heart disease, and made major changes in health care. In 2003, the AHA and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute took action against a disease that was claiming the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year. They created National Wear Red Day which has taken place on the first Friday in February every year to raise awareness about heart disease being the number one killer of women.

For more information or to purchase tickets call (606) 833-3580 or (606) 833-3112. RSVPs are requested by Feb. 5.
