The Chicago Heart Ball, attended by more than 1,000 individuals from Chicago’s business, medical and philanthropic communities, is an annual black-tie gala benefiting the American Heart Association’s life-saving mission. The Heart Ball celebrates our efforts to build a foundation of health in our community and ensure everyone lives a longer, healthier life. The evening’s festivities begin with a pre-event reception that includes an amazing silent auction followed by an elegant dinner, inspiring program and a spectacular live auction. The evening concludes with our Ignite The Night After Party with specialty lounges and festive entertainment.
The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world. Nearly 2,200 Americans die of a cardiovascular disease each day — one person every 39 seconds. You can join the American Heart Association in being a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Your dedication to the mission will help us fund breakthroughs in science and technology; change systems and policy; and address individuals’ overall health and wellbeing, anchored in cardiovascular and brain health.
