Money raised for heart health

     People with generous hearts raised a lot of money for a great cause Saturday night and ABC 6 was a part of it.
     The annual “Heart Ball” to benefit the American Heart Association – Southern New England Chapter was held at the Marble House in Newport last night.
     ABC 6 Meteorologist Steve Cascione was the master of ceremonies and the auctioneer.
     The goal is to prevent and treat all heart illness for all people, but in particularly the money helps children who have congenial heart defects and need surgery.
     Just the auction alone took in more than 70 thousand dollars, but you still have time to donate to the American Heart Association at americanheart.org
     ABC 6was a media sponsor for the event and we were proud to be involved in supporting such a worthy cause.
