On Saturday, February 25, the 2023 Montgomery County Heart Ball benefiting the American Heart Association included dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions, and was the culmination of the year-round Heart of Montgomery County campaign, focused on CPR education, controlling blood pressure, improving nutrition security, and fighting the tobacco and vaping crisis in our community.

The Heart Ball, presented by St. Luke’s Health – The Woodlands Hospital and held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott, was an opportunity to celebrate survivors and the progress made to eradicate heart disease and stroke through the determination, dedication and passion of all who support the Heart of Montgomery County.


Kathy Tautenhahn, President of Amazing Spaces, served as the event’s Chair in loving memory of her husband Scott Tautenhahn. During the event, Kathy shared Scott’s story and encouraged all to get routine checkups. After going in for a routine checkup, Scott took a stress test which led to a successful heart surgery which gave Scott twelve more years with their family.
