To kick off heart month, I had the honor of being invited to attend a private event and concert in none other than New York City!!! How exciting!!! Shortly before the big day, we found out that Sheryl Crow would be headlining the private concert and Rita Ora would also be performing!!
The reason I was invited to attend this event is that normally when you are selected to be a Go Red For Women Real Woman, your class gets a free trip to NYC for the red dress event. Since I was the class of 2021, during the pandemic, there was no travel allowed for us that year. I was so excited when they extended the invitation to our class in 2023. And thank you to the Real Women Class of 2023 for sharing the spotlight with 2021 and 2022.
The event had wonderful food, an open bar (I had to get a glass of Prosecco), and the concert. It was a small venue that overlooked the city outside. Very beautiful! Rita Ora was fantastic and Sheryl was amazing! I was never a huge fan of her until I saw her perform that night and she was spectacular! And luckily, I knew all the songs! During the concert, various celebrities modeled red dresses for us from the red dress collection. It was unreal!
My feet were killing me by the end of the night, but what a night it was! I was elated to meet my fellow Real Women Class of 2021 since we had only met virtually throughout the year. What a great group of heart sisters.
Thank you to American Heart Association for a lovely evening.
