26 May A Full House for the 2020 Virtual Heart Ball
This year’s Tri-County Heart Ball, presented by the American Heart Association and co-chaired by Jeff Ryznar and Dr. Meredythe McNally-Ryznar, was an absolute success despite being moved to Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though it was presented virtually, over 1,000 people tuned into the Heart Ball, which was Las Vegas-themed. The “Casino Night” featured a variety of entertainment options, including live music, stand-up comedy, and a live auction in the chat area. Perhaps the biggest story of the night, though, was the final donation total: $44,931. Not only did this total exceed the American Heart Association’s goal of $40,000, but the final digits (31) were a tribute to the late Nick McGahagan, an employee of the American Heart Association who unexpectedly passed away earlier this year. Even though our “Night in Vegas” had to be enjoyed virtually, it was an amazing event, and 898 Marketing thanks everyone who went “all-in” on the 2020 Heart Ball!
