Genesys to Host ‘Affair of the Heart’ Fundraiser to Help Heart Attack Victims
Genesys Heart Institute will host the third annual “Affair of the Heart” this week to help save the lives of heart attack victims.
The black-tie optional event will feature a cocktail reception, strolling dinner, casino gaming, dueling pianos and dancing. A late night sweet table and Polar coffee bar will also be available.
Proceeds from this year’s fundraiser will help establish the joint STEMI activation-from-the-field project which will enhance communication between the hospital and EMS workers through smart technology to expedite patient care. STEMI – short for ST elevation myocardial infarction caused by a blockage of one of three coronary arteries that supplies blood to the heart – is considered one of the most deadly forms of heart attacks and nearly 250,000 experience one annually.
The Affair of the Heart gala fundraiser is Friday, February 7th beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc. To purchase tickets, go to www.genesys.org/affairoftheheart or call (810) 606-6364.
