Since the beginning of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the American Heart Association has been closely following the guidance from the CDC and state and local health officials regarding our events. The safety of our guests has been and will continue to be our top priority.
In order to control the spread of the virus, the CDC is recommending postponing events with crowds of 50 for the next eight weeks. As a result, we will be postponing Heart’s Delight Wine Tasting & Auction previously scheduled for April 29-May 2, 2020. Our team is working diligently to identify alternative opportunities, and we will provide an update to you as soon as possible. Until we find a new date for Heart's Delight, all ticket sales will be suspended.
The funds we raise going forward are critical to our urgent mission: to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. Gifts will be used to fund lifesaving research, support health and education initiatives in our community, improve the quality of care in our hospitals, advocate for healthy policies and so much more. We know that many of you have questions around how the coronavirus impacts individuals with underlying health issues, such as cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association will continue to update this web page with coronavirus health information and tips to help people keep up their heart healthy habits amid virus concerns.
