The 2014 Siouxland Fire & Ice Heart Ball was held in South Sioux City, Neb.
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE (KTIV) -
Heart disease is the number one killer in the United States.
Saturday in South Sioux City, Nebraska, the American Heart and Stroke Associations raised awareness while enjoying an evening out.
The 2014 Siouxland Fire and Ice Heart Ball was held at the Marina Inn Conference Center.
It was a fundraising event, with the proceeds staying in Siouxland for grants, research and education.
Karen Miner was the chair for the gala. Her sister is a stroke survivor.
"When we were in the hospital with Em, the information they gave us was all from the American Heart Association," said Miner. "So it's very important to me, my family, and our community that we get out and we raise funds for research."
KTIV's Sheila Brummer was the emcee for the event.
Included in the gala was dinner as well as a live and silent auction.
