Today is National Wear Red Day, a day aimed at raising awareness and funds to help fight heart disease in women. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, causing 1 in three deaths in each year. That's one woman every three minutes. Something must be done!

The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women initiative helps women identify warning signs of heart disease and provides them with resources to help change the statistics of heart disease in women. One simple way that you can help is by attending a fundraiser in Cedar Rapids next week.

Go Red For Women at Popoli is Friday, February 9th in Cedar Rapids. There is a cocktail party, heave hours d'oeuvres, and a silent and live auction. The event is at Popoli's Restaurant at 101 3rd Ave in Cedar Rapids. The event is from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. Tickets are $35 a piece and can be ordered at buytickets.at/211.  All funds raised will go to the American Heart Association.

Event sponsors include UICCU Wealth Management and LA Trends Addict.
