Donna Hartley is set to be featured as keynote speaker during the event, which will also feature a silent auction, a heart-healthy lunch and more involving the Go Red for Women campaign.“I’m excited,” Hartley said over the phone Monday.The annual event aims to raise awareness toward preventable heart health issues, and raise money for the American Heart Association.Individual tickets are available for $50 at PermianBasinGoRed.heart.org. Group tables and sponsorship opportunities are also available.Hartley is a former Miss Hawaii and actress who has survived cancer and open-heart surgery.“I love to do these because, being a heart survivor, I probably had only two weeks to live or I would’ve had a heart attack,” Hartley said. “So I want other people to become aware, so they check their heart before it gets to that crisis stage.”Hartley said she’s been a part of more than two dozen American Heart Association events.“It’s educational, along with people having a great time, seeing other friends, raising money, being aware, and passing it down from generation to generation to generation,” Hartley said.“It really is a valuable couple of hours. It could save your life, so that’s how valuable it is.”American Heart Association regional communications director Alex Bravata echoed Hartley’s description off the event.“It’s just a good way for women to connect and to learn more about their health,” she said.Bravata said money raised at the event will go toward the American Heart Association’s mission, which she said includes funding research and grants along with awareness-raising ventures.“Our main goal is to raise awareness about women’s heart health, because heart disease does kill one in three women, and I think a lot of people don’t realize that,” Bravata said.“Our goal is really just to raise awareness about heart disease in women, and in men. I think when they come to these events, they can expect some educational advice from speakers, and things like that. And we also want it to be a celebration as far as women coming together.”More Information Foolproof Roasted Pork TenderloinUpside Down Blueberry Pie CheesecakeVirgin Coco MojitoPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay WhatsApp Facebook By admin – April 7, 2018 Local News Go Red for Women Luncheon set for Odessa Twitter Home Local News Go Red for Women Luncheon set for Odessa OC employee of the year always learning ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ Pinterest Permian Basin Go Red.Permian Basin Go Red on Facebook.last_img read more

Men’s water polo preps for showdown against UCLA

Photo by Tucker Judkins | Daily TrojanAfter dropping one spot in the rankings after a loss at Cal, the No. 2 men’s water polo team looks to rebound in its regular season finale against No. 4 UCLA on Saturday. Last weekend, the team went 1-1, falling to the now top-ranked Bears and defeating No. 5 Pacific. With a national championship on their mind, the Trojans (22-2) look to avenge an early-season loss to the Bruins (17-3) when they travel to Westwood.When the Trojans last faced UCLA in the championship game of the Mountain Pacific Invitational on Sept. 24, they lost 13-11, going back and forth with UCLA for most of the third quarter. “I think there were just all these little things that we messed up on and that we have gotten better at recently,” senior utility James Walters said. “Throughout the season, we’ve become a totally different team, so I’m excited to see where that will take us this weekend.”At practices, the team has been focusing on refining its game after the disappointing loss to Cal (18-1).“We’re going to focus a lot of our attention on finishing out high-percentage opportunities,” senior driver Blake Edwards said. “They’re critical to the overall outcome of the game.”The Trojans last defeated the Bruins in Westwood in 2014. Though UCLA boasts a roster that includes seven seniors and eight All-Americans, Edwards said USC is ready to handle the Bruins and their home crowd.“It’s a big opportunity,” Edwards said. “We love any game against UCLA. This team’s been together for three years now, so we’re well used to these pressured situations.”As the match against UCLA marks the end of the regular season, the Trojans have the upcoming MPSF Tournament and the NCAA Championships in mind. “We just want to win a national championship — that’s the one goal for everyone this season,” Walters said. “That’s the entire team. That’s all we’re thinking about. So winning the game this weekend is huge for us: We need a big win going into the MPSF Tournament.”last_img read more
