The Woodlands Waterway Marriott was flooded with gorgeous gowns for an amazingcause this past weekend as the community came out to support heart health at the 2019 Montgomery County Heart Ball. The event benefits the American Heart Association which has funded more than $3.5 billion in research since 1949 in the fight against our nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers, heart disease and stroke.

The legacy sponsors of the event were Suzanne and Bob Potter, while North Side Imports Houston served as the presenting sponsor. Sondra, MJ, and Chris Ruhman were the event chairs for the sports-themed gala, and Christen and Brad Kaufman were honorees.

Heart Survivor, Bryce Deegear, a Woodlands High School student, received a standing ovation and was joined by his soccer teammates when he shared his touching story of being diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and having to stop competitive soccer due to a defibrillator.

Guests supported the cause through the bid-board and live auctions that were filled with fantastic prizes. Attendees enjoyed the glamorous décor, exquisite dinner, and dancing to world-renowned DJ, Mick following dinner at the after-event lounge.

The mission of the American Heart Association is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. The AHA was founded in 1924 and educates lawmakers, policymakers and the public. They fund research and education and are advocates for better health, improving patient care and reaching populations at risk.
