DOWNTOWN GET DOWN TO BENEFIT THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION
Aug 16, 2017
The Mobile community is joining together for the American Heart Association at the inaugural Downtown Get Down Block Party from 5:30pm-8:30pm on Thursday, August 24th 2017. Come out to the corner of Dauphin and Royal Streets in downtown Mobile, Alabama, where for a $20 donation, you can enjoy music by The Tip Tops and food and drink specials from several downtown hot spots such as the Haberdasher, Pizzeria Delphina, FOY (Fountain of Youth), and more.
Cash and credit card donations to the American Heart Association will be accepted "at the door". While some establishments, such as the Haberdasher, require that their patrons are 21+, families are more than welcome to attend and can check out the music, street vendors, and a party you don’t want to miss.
“This is a chance for people to gather together to celebrate our community, have fun dancing in the street, and support the mission of the Heart Association,” says Hargrove’s Mobile Office Leader, Roy Duncan. Hargrove’s President and CEO, Ralph A. Hargrove, will serve as Chair of the 2017 Mobile Heart Walk this October. The Downtown Get Down is one of many fundraising events organized throughout all 11 of Hargrove’s offices nationwide in the effort to make an impact in awareness and research for heart health in our communities.
“We all have a reason to walk because we all have loved ones who have been impacted by heart disease. Since 1996, my brother, Buddy, has had countless stints, multiple angioplasties and has survived bypass surgery,” said Ralph A. Hargrove. “Because of the research and advances in medicine thanks in part to the Heart Association, he is a survivor. This is why I’ve made my commitment to the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the number one killer of Americans, and we can change that by individually making healthy choices and through our support of the American Heart Association.”
