American Heart Association with American Stroke Association with life is why text for Wisconsin thanking Hupy and Abraham

Dear Hupy and Abraham,

Thank you for your auction donation and supporting the good work of the American Heart Association at this year’s Heart & Stroke Ball. Because of your generosity, we were able to raise $493,000 to aid in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and stroke. It is because of donors like you who enable the vital work of the American Heart Association to continue for generations to come. We are grateful for your donation to our silent and/or live auction, your contribution helps us fun our life saving mission.

At the ball, we celebrated the work of the American Heart Association and looked back at the past 40 years. We saw a great story about Abby and how she is using her platform as Miss Pre-Teen Wisconsin to spread awareness on heart health. We also got an update from Lindsey, an 11-year-old that had just a 5% chance to live, but is now living a healthy life with a generous heart. And we heard a story on Jeff and Neal on how important hands-only CPR and dispatcher assistance is. Because of you, we can call these folks survivors and heroes.

With your help in raising $493,000, we know the next 40 years are going to produce ground breaking research and are going to be just as transformational!

With heartfelt thanks,

Colleen McInerny
Development Coordinator
