The Texas Heart Institute will kick off their 7th decade with a Supper Club celebration, Fri., Sept. 22, featuring Pink Martini at The Post Oak Hotel. Chairing this year’s event are long-time supporters, Kelli Kickerillo and Todd Forester, along with Honorary Chairs, Mary and Vincent Kickerillo.
Like the iconic Supper Clubs of the 40s, the evening promises a memorable experience that goes beyond the ordinary. The sophisticated, yet fun atmosphere will allow guests to enjoy the entertainment and connect with friends while celebrating the successes in the fight against cardiovascular disease. It has been more than seven years since The Texas Heart Institute hosted an evening fundraising event and so much has changed since that time. Houston survived Hurricane Harvey, the world endured a global pandemic, and The Institute mourned the losses of its founder, Dr. Denton A. Cooley and President Emeritus, Dr. James T. Willerson. The Texas Heart Institute also hired a new President & CEO, Dr. Joseph G. Rogers, started a new clinical practice, and celebrated its 60th Anniversary.
This evening will celebrate the tremendous contributions The Texas Heart Institute has made toward cardiovascular health. Although there has been a significant reduction in death rates over the last century, cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death and disability for women and men globally. Thus, it is critical that The Texas Heart Institute continue discovering breakthroughs and the Houston community continue funding them.
