Atlanticare Red Dress Event in Galloway at Smithville Inn

The Heart Institute at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center held its seventh Red Dress Reception on February 12th at the Smithville Inn. The event was a huge success with men and women wearing red to help promote awareness of heart disease. The evening included heavy hors d’oeuvres, vendor shopping, silent auction, live entertainment and a cash bar. AtlantiCare’s Red Dress Reception is one way AtlantiCare is promoting heart health during American Heart Month. All of the proceeds from the evening will be in support of the Heart Heroes partnership to purchase and distribute AED’s (automated external defibrillators) in our community. AED’s are a computerized medical device that can restart heart function in those who have experienced life-threatening sudden cardiac arrest. Through the Heart Hero’s partnership, AtlanticCare has placed more than 110 AED’s at schools, places of worship, recreation centers, fire and police departments, municipal buildings, and other well-populated public places. The proceeds from the evening will enable AtlantiCare to continue this important program for the benefit of our community. The night brought fun for all and all for a great cause!
