The Richmond Heart Ball includes live and silent auctions, live music and a seated dinner. Each year the Heart Ball’s unique theme is anxiously anticipated by all participants. This year’s “Conquering the Heart” theme will highlight local researches, doctors and medical professionals that are making significant contributions in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
