By Ray and Peggy Munroe
Five years ago, we lost our oldest son to a massive heart attack. In our grief, we wanted to do something that might prevent other parents from going through that devastation. We also wanted to make sure that Ray, Jr, was not forgotten. The result was Have a Heart Celebration, which will be held on February 16 of this year, with funds designated for The Ray Munroe, Jr, PHD, Endowment at the TMH Foundation. Since our inaugural event in 2014, we have raised almost $100,000.
Unlike most charitable events, 100% of the money raised goes directly to the Tallahassee Memorial Heart and Vascular Center. Mays-Munroe and our vendors cover all overhead. All money is processed by TMH, which is a registered 501C charity, and all donors will receive receipts directly from TMH. It is a win-win for everyone!
Admission is complimentary, although donations are welcome. Guests will enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, drinks, music and opportunities to bid on high quality Live Auction items. Silent auction items will also be offered. Multiple items will be raffled.
Cardiologist, Frank Gredler, MD, will give us a brief update on advances in cardio vascular treatment. Afterwards, auctioneer Malcolm Mason of Manor Auctions will preside over the Live Auction.
Please join us for the fun! If you would like to donate an auction item or money, please call me at 385-9495 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
