Handbags Helping Hearts And Educating Women About Heart Disease

Bridge Street

Purses are more than a fashion statement. They are raising awareness of the number one killer of women: heart disease.

“For so many women they just push symptoms aside and they don’t quite know what’s going on because too many people think heart disease is a man’s disease,” said Kristy Smorol from the American Heart Association.

The American Heart Association is inviting everyone to attend their annual Handbags Helping Hearts event. There will be purse packages for auction, provided by many sponsors across Central New York. Most of the purse packages have personal notes from the donors as well.

Handbags Helping Hearts is Thursday, September 9th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Stickley Audi & Company located at 330 Towne Drive in Fayetteville. For tickets and more information visit SyracuseGoRed.Heart.org
