Each table at the Heart Ball was decorated with checkered flags and cars to match the theme, "Keep Your Motor Running."
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) -
Hundreds of people came out to have a ball, and a little heart to heart about cardiovascular disease at the Marina Inn in South Sioux City Nebraska Saturday.
The Siouxland American Heart and Stroke Association celebrated its 18th Annual Heart Ball.
This year's theme was "Keep Your Motor Running," to remind people about their heart health.
Money raised will go towards spreading awareness and research.
"With our fundraising dollars we raise, and we do very well each year, we are able to give fellowship grants to doctors that want to pursue a higher education with cardiovascular disease," Linda Wadedo-Jochims the event's director said.
She also says it's important to spread the message to young people because many children are affected.
