2020 Danville Heart Gala
February 1 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm$80
Join us on Saturday, February 1st for the 4th annual Danville Heart Gala.
Similar to last year, in 2020 all proceeds will stay local. All funds raised will be used to help jump start an initiative known as PulsePoint in our region. PulsePoint is an app that can be downloaded to anyone’s phone. When an alert is received from PulsePoint, it will notify the receiver of a cardiac arrest event within a certain mile radius and notify them of where they can find the nearest AED. According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 cardiac arrest events happen every year outside of a hospital and 9 out of 10 victims will die. With this app, bystanders will be notified if they are close to where an event is taking place and they can assist by beginning CPR. Studies show that the sooner CPR begins, the better the outcome. Sudden cardiac arrest can lead to death within minutes. For every minute that passes, survival odds decrease 10%. For more information on PulsePoint, please visit pulsepoint.org.
