Anthony Nurse, CEO of Autograph Store, is pleased to partner with the American Heart Association for this event. “Autograph Store strives to assist celebrity charity auctions as often as we can throughout the year. It is Autograph Store’s pleasure to be associated with such a vital organization. This is a big event and it is another example of how Autograph Store Charity Fundraising supports charities in increasing their fundraising through our silent and live auction program.”
The Heart Ball will raise funds to support American Heart Association cardiovascular disease research which will improve the lives of Springfield community residents. The American Heart Association has allocated over $21 million for 179 research studies at seven institutions in Missouri in the past five years. The vital issue of children’s heart health will also be highlighted at the Heart Ball through the American Heart Association’s Learn and Live Special Appeal. This special campaign focuses on a number of issues including teaching kids about the dangers of smoking, childhood obesity and heart-related birth defects.
