On behalf of the American Heart Association and the 2009 Baltimore Heart ball team, thank you for graciously providing your time and services for this year’s event that was held on February 21, 2009 at the Renaissance HarborPlace Hotel. According to all accounts, our guest had a great time. The food, the atmosphere, decor, the signage and the music all got rave reviews. People are already talking about next year’s event! Your help was so critical in helping us meet our goals. You played a great part in the success of our event and your efforts helped us raise over $508,000 towards defeating heart disease and stroke, the nations number one and three killers of all Americans. On behalf of the millions of people impacted each year by heart disease and stroke, thank you again for your efforts!
