Red Shoe Lunch
Please join us for our 14th Annual Red Shoe Lunch. The event will take place on Saturday, February 24, 2024 from 12p-3p at Cherokee Town Club | 155 W Paces Ferry Rd., Atlanta, Georgia 30305.
Supporters! 2024 marks our 14th consecutive year hosting this event. We have done a great job raising awareness about heart disease; however, we have not done the best job raising funds. Prior to securing our non-profit status, all proceeds went to the American Heart Association (AHA). To date we have raised over $21,000 for AHA; however, we haven’t been able to cover the costs for the lunch or raise money for our grassroots efforts (helping those in the communities we live).
Now that we have secured our non-profit status, all proceeds from the lunch will go to the Veronica Blount Memorial Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We will also make our annual contribution to the American Heart Association via the Veronica Blount Memorial Fund with AHA.
Our ticket prices for 2024 will remain the same as 2023. Our supporters can take advantage of the Early Bird ticket sales which will end on December 31, 2023. A portion of all ticket sales will be tax deductible. Please check the ticket details for more information.
We will host an expansive raffle for the 2024 Red Shoe Lunch! The raffle is always a fun highlight of the event and this year's raffle will truly be a highlight!
Raffle items will range from $1 - $100. Tickets can be purchased at the event using cash and credit. You cannot purchase raffle tickets with checks.
Under IRS guidelines, tickets purchased for raffles are not tax deductible. Winners must be present to purchase raffle tickets, but do not need to be present to win. If you leave the event prior to the raffle drawing, please make sure we have your contact information and raffle ticket numbers.
We have a $20,000 fundraising goal for the 14th Annual Red Shoe Lunch. Please CLICK HERE to purchase tickets to the lunch or to make a tax deductible donation.
The Veronica Blount Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
