Second Annual Pulse Red Party Takes Place on March 1st, 2012 at the Westin Sky Terrace with Celebrity Host, Andre Johnson
In their second year, the Broward Pulse committee has hand-selected a motivated and dedicated group of young professionals that are committed to raising awareness of childhood obesity and money for families of children suffering from congenital heart defects.
Last year, Pulse was able to net $48,000 towards this cause, and this year, they have already far exceeded their own expectations. With over $65,000 already committed to the Pulse campaign, the committee looks to top their goal of $100,000 at their Second Annual Red Party.
Co-Chair and Top Fundraiser, Romina Sifuentes, “has been humbled by the generosity of our community. The fact that so many people have donated to this cause shows how important it is to raise awareness of heart health.”
The Red Party will take place on Thursday, March 1st at 8pm at the Westin Sky Terrace. Guests will be treated to open bar sponsored by Stoli Vodka, passed hors d’oeuvres, a silent and live auction, and music provided by a live band and DJ. Celebrity sponsor Andre Johnson will be in attendance, alongside signature sponsors One Beat CPR, Las Olas Riverfront, Silver Lining In Flight Catering, and SOI. Guests are strongly encouraged to wear red.
“This event is a culmination of almost a year of preparation and fundraising, and we are thrilled to present an event that reflects the collaborative efforts of 25 young professionals that truly care about this cause. It’s going to be a great night,” states Pulse Co-Chair, Sara Shake.
Their campaign started with a kick-off netting $15,000 towards their goal at Jet Runway Café, hosted by signature sponsor, Silver Lining In Flight Catering. Since then, the group has worked diligently to spread awareness of their cause through community outreach events like their Heart Healthy Day of Play at Funderdome, where 172 kids and parents received a CPR Demo from One Beat CPR and learned about staying active and healthy.
Broward Pulse is a group of local young professionals working to build a strong beat of commitment to heart health in the next generation of community leaders. It’s your friends and coworkers gathering to educate, inspire and develop the habit of philanthropy dedicated to changing the health of a new generation. Broward Pulse is Co-Chaired by Romina Sifuentes, Jamie Shock, and Sara Shake.
