Last year’s Heart Ball raised over $2,000,000 and drew a record crowd of 1,200 attendees. Funds raised from the event are used to fund the American Heart Association’s lifesaving research and year-round efforts to make Greater Cincinnati a healthier place to live, work and play. Extending long after the Heart Ball, the AHA works in our community through grassroots programs such as Recess in the Stadium and Fit 4 Life Bootcamp, which were designed to fight our childhood obesity crisis and teach heart healthy lifestyles to our youth.

Tickets for the Heart Ball are $500 per person. The Heart Ball evening includes live and silent auctions, elegant gourmet dinner, live entertainment and ends with dancing at a Young Professionals’ After Party.
