More than 700 guests were welcomed to the 2020 Heart Ball by performers who presented their tricks and posed for photos with the crowd. The festive crowd enjoyed cocktails while mingling and perusing the vast silent auction. Kristen and Blake Finney with Courtney and Rob Wilder served as the 2020 co-chairs; the honoree was Hadley East, daughter of Jenny and Brock East. Hadley was diagnosed with heterotaxy-left atrial isomerism at 20 weeks in utero. After two surgeries, she is a happy, healthy 7-year old.

Following dinner, a live auction and the “Open Your Heart Appeal” supporting education, research and community awareness, the “late party” group arrived. They joined the other guests to dance the night away to the music of Super T and the Tyrone Smith Revue.
