Hyde Park Resident Chairs Heart Ball

Jeff Hock, President and Chief Executive Officer of HBH Holdings, is serving as chair for the 2020 Greater Cincinnati Heart Ball.

Jeff Hock, President and Chief Executive Officer of HBH Holdings, is serving as chair for the 2020 Greater Cincinnati Heart Ball, the American Heart Association’s annual black-tie gala celebrating the year-round lifesaving work of the organization. The Heart Ball, presented by TriHealth and St. Elizabeth Healthcare, will mark its 27th year on Saturday, February 22 at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

With over 36 years of leadership experience in the fabrication and process solutions industry, Hock has also held several leadership positions in various organizations and is actively involved as a Board member of a number of companies and non-profit organizations. Hock is a long-standing supporter of the American Heart Association and has served on the Heart Ball Executive Leadership Committee for over six years.

“We are honored to have Jeff on board as chair this year,” said Alicia Lehnert, Sr. Heart Ball director at the American Heart Association. “Jeff’s personal experience with heart disease inspired the theme of this year’s Heart Ball, It Takes a City.”

Jeff Hock commented, “It is a true honor to serve as chair this year. Heart health is very personal to me and my family. I am grateful for the opportunity to make a tangible difference in our community by supporting this great cause.”

Joining Jeff are committee chairs: Marci Campbell, Auction Chair and Ryan Campbell and Katie Hock, After Party Co-Chairs. Additional leadership includes the Executive Team of Patrick Brown, Medtronic; JB Buse, LOTH, Inc.; Garren Colvin, St. Elizabeth Healthcare; Jerin Dunham, Funky’s Catering; James Ferguson, BIG Idea Group; Tom Finn, Ft. Washington Investments; Joseph Hricovsky, Huntington National Bank; Michelle Boutillette Hudgens, Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center; Mark Jahnke, Katz Teller; Mark McDonald, Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center; John Mongelluzzo, Calfee, Halter & Griswold LLP; Ben Russert, Total Prosource; Lee Stautberg, Dinsmore & Shohl; Joel Stone, Fifth Third Bank, DP Suresh, MD, St. Elizabeth Healthcare; Greg Sweeney, Jake Sweeney Chevrolet; Craig Todd, Amend LLC  and Andy Wade, AtriCure, Inc.

The Heart Ball will honor technology executive Lawrence Griffith, CEO of Digital Factory, Inc. Griffith recently made a $2.5 million gift to the American Heart Association to improve the health of Americans, particularly the underserved in his hometown of Cincinnati.

Last year’s Heart Ball raised nearly $1,800,000 and drew a crowd of 1,100 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.

The Heart Ball evening includes live and silent auctions, elegant gourmet dinner, live entertainment and ends with dancing at a Young Professionals’ After Party.
