National: American Heart Association:Southwest Michigan: Go Red for Women Event
Mission: The Go Red for Women luncheon continues to serve as the cornerstone event of the Go Red For Women movement in local communities. This empowering event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising critically-needed funds to support research and education initiatives. Cardiovascular diseases, which include stroke, claim the life of a woman about every 80 seconds. We hope you will join us on our mission because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be prevented.
The time is now. Women are leaning into the idea that when we take a stand, commit, and work together, real change is possible.

The Kalamazoo Signature Chefs Auction features local culinary talent who create a selection of fine cuisine for an exclusive audience. Our chefs are artists, innovators and philanthropists, and we look forward to sharing their talents at the event.
Animal Rescue Project
Mission: Our focus is on saving at-risk pets in pound facilities. We save homeless pets, one at a time, give them medical care and a safe temporary home, and provide responsible adoption services to those seeking pets. We started as a group of about 50 skilled and experienced animal rescue volunteers in 2010, and we’ve grown to about 150 volunteers.
The mission is all about homeless pets, but it’s also all about people: our volunteers, certainly, but also like-minded animal lovers who choose to give a second chance to a homeless pet. Together, we are addressing the problem of pet homelessness. If you’d like to join us, we welcome new volunteers, members, and other supporters.
