For 17 years, more than 500 of the region's most prominent medical, corporate, and community leaders gather at an elegant, black-tie event to celebrate the work of the American Heart Association and culminate American Heart Month.
This year's Heart Ball features remarks by Chelsea Clinton.
The theme for this year is joie de vivre - the joy of life. It goes hand in hand with the American Heart Association's new anthem, Life is Why.
After the cocktail reception meet and greets, the guests made their way into another section where the bulk of the evening took place.
