The American Heart Association hosted the 2021 Houston Go Red for Women Digital Celebration to support the effort to end heart disease and stroke and raise awareness of the No. 1 killer of women – cardiovascular disease. Guests wore red as they enjoyed the virtual experience from their homes. Mother-daughter team Laura and Nina Bhatia (pictured) were co-chairs, and emcee was Katherine Whaley. Attendees heard a survivor story from Cindy Yeilding and an interview with women’s advocate Janet Gurwitch. The event, sponsored by SheSpace and its founders, Stephanie and Katie Tsuru, raised more than $900,000.
