The American Heart Association Celebrity Golf Tournament is a captain's
choice scramble that supports the fight against heart diseases and stroke.
Senior level executive leaders from across the metropolitan DC region compete in
the tournament. The event day includes breakfast, silent auction, exciting
challenges, raffle items, lunch and post-event awards dinner. In 2011,
participants raised more than $250,000 for the mission of the AHA - building
healthier lives free from cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Managing Director, Ilium Ventures LLC
By supporting the American Heart Association, you save
Heart diseases are responsible for 1 out of every 3 deaths, making them the
nation's number one killer, while stroke is the nation's number four killer.
These diseases affect everyone - men, women and children. Golfers are at
elevated risk of cardiac arrest and a golf course is the fifth most common place
to suffer from cardiac arrest. Your local AHA is working to stop these
tragic statistics by raising the critical funding needed for research, education
and community programs that lead to healthier lives, free of cardiovascular
diseases and stroke.
The dollars raised through the Golf Tournament are transformed into funding
local and regional life-saving medical research and community education
initiatives. Whether the AHA empowers children in Washington DC's Ward 7 and 8
(the area with the highest rate of childhood obesity in the nation) to make
healthy behavior changes and become peer advocates for healthy living, or
ensures the overall quality of care a heart or stroke patient receives, your
support makes a significant difference.
