Raise Awareness of Heart Disease and Celebrate
The Silver Award at The Red Hot Gala
Feb. 16 | Colusa Casino

Show off your favorite red dress, red shirt, red tie at this Red Carpet "Hollywood" Style event where we'll raise awareness of heart disease, and celebrate our cardiovascular team and their achievement of the GWTM Silver Performance Achievement Award.

Our Cardiovascular health professionals are the reason that Rideout Health received the prestigious GWTM Silver Performance Achievement Award — only one of 73 hospitals nationwide to do so. The award recognizes RH's commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients.

The Red Hot Gala is a night to experience the unexpected! Colusa Casino Resort will provide the backdrop for this charity ball, and the event is hosted by the Heart Center at Rideout physicians and staff — and the Rideout Health Foundation.

The cocktail hour, beginning at 6P, will feature, Wine and Chocolate Tastings, Souvenir photographs Moments to Remember, Anthony Emmolo's Art for The Heart and a no-host bar.

Beginning at 7P, we'll present a plated-dinner to arouse your palette; an Oscar-style awards presentation for those who paved the way to the prestigious Silver Award; and SURPRISE entertainment.

After dinner and awards, we'll heat up the night with a dance performance featuring local Dance With Our Stars, pros and will electrify the rest of the evening with dancing to The Jeff Poppinga Band.

All proceeds from this sizzling Red Hot event will help fund new digital echocardiography equipment. The new echocardiography machine will enable Rideout Health staff to deliver superior image quality to physicians when identifying potential heart disease. It is also the preferred machine for pediatric cardiologists.
