MADISON (WKOW) -- The American Heart Association Madison Heart Ball is going virtual this year.
Volunteers, survivors and supporters of the world’s leading non-profit organization focused on heart and brain health, will “gather” for the annual Madison Heart Ball virtually from home on June 18th.
The ball will highlight the need to advance scientific research and expand community programs that protect the cardiovascular health of Dane County residents.
WKOW anchor Amber Noggle and her husband Dustin are chairing this year's event in honor of their son Dax, who was born with a critical congenital heart defect.
The AHA is working diligently to provide reliable, science-based information for those who currently have one or more cardiovascular conditions which could put them at higher risk for COVID-19 complications.
The silent auction opened to the public on June 11 and will remain open until the event on June 18. Click here for more information on how to register for the auction or the event.
All proceeds will benefit the American Heart Association, which recently announced a $2.5 million fund for rapid response scientific research projects to investigate the specific cardiovascular implications of coronavirus.
