Important Fundraiser Supports WMCHealth’s Heart & Vascular Institute
VALHALLA, NY (February 11, 2022) – Girls’ Night Out, a fashion and beauty event that brings awareness to women’s heart health while supporting care provided by WMCHealth’s Heart & Vascular Institute, will be held in-person March 3 at Sonesta White Plains Downtown in White Plains, NY.
The annual event, emceed this year by Emmy-award-winning, WCBS-TV news anchor Mary Calvi, is an opportunity for colleagues and friends to network, shop, dance and enjoy fine food and drink, while learning the benefits of good heart health.
Heart disease remains the number one killer of women in the United States, causing one-third of all female deaths annually. With the proper lifestyle and treatment, however, 80 percent of heart ailments and strokes are preventable, according to the American Heart Association.
Many of these life-changing and lifesaving heart treatments are offered by the Westchester Medical Center Health Network’s (WMCHealth) Heart & Vascular Institute, and Girls’ Night Out also serves as a fundraiser for this important service. WMCHealth’s Heart & Vascular Institute offers the Hudson Valley’s most comprehensive cardiac care program, offering a wide range of cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery and vascular surgery services to women, men and patients of all ages.
An Evening to Remember
Girls’ Night Out will begin with a cocktail hour during which guests can shop a variety of vendors, and secure beauty tips during live demonstrations in the Bloomingdale’s White Plains beauty suite. Raffle prizes and a silent auction will be available, too.
Following the cocktail hour, guests will enjoy dinner while watching the event’s highlight: a pre-recorded fashion show sponsored by Macy’s at Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers. The fashion show will feature patients, healthcare providers and their dramatic stories of triumph over cardiac disease.
Girls Night Out was inspired by Tanya Dutta, MD, to support the WMCHealth Heart and Vascular Institute. Dr. Dutta was Director of Echocardiography at Westchester Medical Center before her passing last year.
