Heart & Stroke Foundation - Red Dress Event

The Red Dress Gala - Heart Truth Kelowna is a beautiful and impactful fashion show fundraiser in support of the Heart & Stroke Foundation.  This year is the 7th Annual in Kelowna, and the 4th year at the beautiful Manteo Resort Waterfront Hotel & Villas.

The evening presented beautiful women and men from the community showcasing their elegant wear on the catwalk to fundraise for the Heart & Stroke's efforts in research, education against heart disease, and promoting a healthier lifestyle.

The evening included a sparkling wine reception, canapes, live entertainment, a grand prize raffle, silent auction and the fashion show spotlighting the models on the runway, each with their own personal connection to heart disease and stroke.

Red Dress in Kelowna has raised more than $148,000 in the past 6 years and has firmly established itself as the premier fundraiser for women’s heart health in Kelowna.

This year, the Heart & Stoke raised just shy of $40,000 which is well over their original goal!!

Thanks to the entire team at the Kelowna Heart and Stroke Foundation, and especially to Wendy Wright, the Coordinator, Community Fundraising – Okanagan/Interior for making the event such a success!!
