Montgomery County Heart Ball Honored Warriors
Presented by the American Heart Association (AHA), the 22nd Annual Montgomery County Heart Ball honored heart warriors from across Montgomery County and raised funds on Saturday, February 18th at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.
The AHA’s Heart Ball themed “Honor Thy Heart: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” was an elegant occasion, gathering over 800 business and community leaders to help raise funds to support the mission, encourage heart-healthy habits and celebrate the commitment to fight heart disease and stroke. For over 22 years, the Montgomery County Heart Ball has raised over $4.6 million towards the AHA’s critical mission.

Each segment of the program was inspired by the popular HBO series Games of Thrones where guests enjoyed a “Winterfell” reception followed by a “King’s Landing” opening of the doors to the grand ballroom featuring a three course dinner,champagne toast, a live auction, ceremony, dancing, and music. ABC 13 Investigative Reporter and Woodlands local, Ted Oberg, was the emcee of the evening joined by 2017 Chairs Tammy and Danny Schroder, and Honorees Suzanne and Bob Potter.

A canvas painting named “My Heart” crafted by Teagon herself was included in the live auction, raising thousands along with items such as a Rodeo Suite, 50 Guest Soiree by Fieldings, Custom Diamond Ring by Mark Pharo, as well as trips and experiences around the globe. A Bid-Board Auction, “Open Your Hall” Cash Call, Raffle to win a 2017 BMW, and more activities were held during the event to raise funds for AHA’s lifesaving efforts.
