It was an uplifting and rockin’ evening when American Heart Association (AHA) asked the audience in a packed ballroom at Hyatt Regency/Colorado Convention Center to open its hearts. The most touching story came from the Blanchfield family, whose adorable son Cash was born with a severe heart condition and received a life-saving heart transplant after waiting 51 days. The gala was preceded by a VIP Reception in the 27th Floor Peaks Lounge with incredible views. Legacy Donors to empower families with the lifesaving skill of CPR were “Saving Little Hearts” donors Copeland Family Charities and Arlene Mohler Johnson in memory of her late husband Don Johnson.
The Denver Metro Board of Directors saluted Sami and Steve Lockton for their commitment to the 2019 Denver Heart Ball and their continued support in the fight against heart diseases and stroke.
