An Affair of the Heart

Saturday, February 13
Peach Tree Golf & Country Club

Soroptimist International of Marysville and Yuba City and the Rideout Health Foundation present An Affair of the Heart an event with women at heart!

An Affair of the Heart is a part of the Sorpoptimist Speakers Series and will feature Dr. Baron Harper, a surgeon at Rideout Cardiothoracic and the Heart Center at Rideout and Christy Sillman, RN, MSN a heart survivor who will discuss her journey.

Despite being once considered a 'man's disease,' heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. Women's heart disease often begins with warning signs - fatigue, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, sleep disturbances or feeling like they' are slowing down for a period of time. Their symptoms can be vague which means women are less likely to seek medical attention.

We hope you will join us to learn more about typical and atypical symptoms for women, how to look after your heart and risk factors and how to address them.

A reception, exhibitors and a fabulous luncheon is provided as well as a very special fashion show highlighting heart survivors as models -- and clothing, jewelry and accessories from:

  • Always Elegant Bridal & Formal Wear
  • D Street Boutique
  • Monica Becker for CAbi
  • JC Penney
  • Bean Market Jewelry
  • Poppies Apparel and Accessories
  • Shar Katz with Stella & Dot.

Tickets are $35 each and can be reserved via email to or by calling 530.751.4070. Preferred tables of eight (limited) $300 each. Checks payable to Soroptimist Marysville/Yuba City to P.O. Box 1895, Yuba City, CA 95992
