Cassy is joining in the fight against heart disease and stroke alongside the American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary health organization devoted to building a world of longer, healthier lives. Throughout the Spring months, Cassy will be participating in Life Is Why We Give™, the American Heart Association’s fundraising campaign.
“I am inspired to be joining the American Heart Association in their fight to make Milwaukee a healthier community. Their lifesaving mission impacts everyone,” Cassy said.
To support this worthwhile mission, now through May 31, 2019, Cassy will offer prints of Homeward, the painting she created live at this year’s Heart & Stroke Ball. A percentage of Homeward’s print sales will be donated to the American Heart Association. Visit Cassy’s online shop to purchase your Homeward print. Each signed, commemorative 12 X 16” print is $50. Signed prints will be available for purchase in Cassy’s studio during the Historic Third Ward’s Gallery Night and Day, April 26 & 27.
“The American Heart Association is committed to fighting heart disease and stroke and improving the quality of life for all Americans,” said American Heart Association Board Chairman James Postl. “Our work would not be possible without the generous support of committed companies like these who provide donation opportunities to their customers. These corporate citizens provide a force multiplying impact to our work and help us get ever closer to a world without needless suffering or death.”
As the leading source of non-government funded cardiovascular science, the Association has invested more than $3.7 billion in scientific research and discovery since 1949. The organization trains approximately 2 million high school graduates in CPR every year and has reduced cardiovascular disease mortality by 70 percent since 1968.
In addition to contributing to saving lives through Cassy’s print sales, donations may be made directly to the Association at www.lifeiswhy.org/donate. To learn more about the Life Is Why We Give™ campaign and to find other participating companies, visit heart.org/lifeiswhywegive.
