Red Tie Society Raises Money for Healthy Hearts

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Nearly 70 Westchester and Fairfield, Conn. residents gathered at the White Plains Morton's Monday to kick off February, the American heart month, by raising money and awareness about how heart diseases affect women.

Potoula Gjidija, the regional director for Go Red for Women , said the local heart-health organization joined with the Red Tie Society, a men's organization that advocates for women's heart health, to throw the fundraiser.

"Heart disease is the number one cause of women's death," said Gjidija. "Every man has a woman in his life, whether it's a mother, sister, daughter. So this is about men coming together for their community."

All proceeds from the evening went to the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women campaign.
