Join us for an unforgettable evening of hope and entertainment at the 2018 Southern Delaware Heart Ball.  This black-tie encouraged event is where community members, medical professionals and corporate leaders come together to celebrate the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association.
From the luscious hors d'oeuvres and food stations to the silent and live auction – it’s an exciting night of glitz and glamour. 
 
For years, the Heart Ball has helped to advance the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association, a mission that has impacted the lives of thousands of men, women and children in the southern Delaware area.  Contributions received go far in supporting cardiovascular research, professional and community education, and advocacy efforts.

The Heart Ball celebrates: our work and mission; our donors and volunteers; and – most importantly – the lives saved and improved because of everyone’s efforts. We look forward to celebrating with you! For more information, tickets or for sponsorship opportunities, visit http://southerndeheartball.heart.org.
