“A Woman’s Heart” Set for January 30, 2020

A Woman’s Heart is an evening which blends fashion, fun and education. The one of a kind event will be held on Thursday evening January 30, 2020 at the Leslie Town Centre from 5-8:30 pm. The evening will include dining, a silent auction, fashion show by Cigis, Side Stich and Matilda Jane, and finally a heart-health education seminar by Dr. Ashley Nickerson about women’s cardiac-health.

Cardiologists and cardiac staff at Cookeville Regional make this event a priority each year, and we use this opportunity to present the annual “Martin Coffey Cardiovascular Health Award” to one deserving individual who has done an exemplary job in advancing cardiovascular care and promoting heart-health.  

A Woman’s Heart will include 350 guests from our 14-county regional Upper Cumberland community. Likewise, proceeds from the event will serve the charitable needs of regional heart patients. Patients are vetted by Cookeville Regional social services staff before receiving assistance. Aid often includes gas-cards to access cardiac rehabilitation programs, short-term assistance with groceries and utilities for families, or assistance with medication or medical equipment for under-insured, low-income patients. 

I hope you will support A Women’s Heart with a sponsorship and help us continue to grow efforts to educate women in the Upper Cumberland about the danger of heart disease and ways we can all decrease risk of heart disease. Please feel free to reach out to me if you need additional information.
