IU Health will be the top sponsor of the American Heart Association’s 30th annual Heart Ball in May 2015, committing to a $50,000 sponsorship of the event.
The 2015 Heart Ball is chaired by Bill McConnell, chief information officer for IU Health, and is expected to raise more than $700,000 for the American Heart Association’s mission of building healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
The sponsorship lays the foundation for the event to exceed the $707,000 raised at the 2014 Heart Ball, which was held May 17 at the JW Marriott. That event included a $25,000 donation by Lilly CEO John Lechleiter.
The date and location for the 2015 Heart Ball will be announced at a later date
