The World Heart Day mission is to stress the importance of heart disease prevention, from childhood through adulthood. Heart disease remains the #1 killer in many countries, including the U.S., yet it is well known 80 percent of premature deaths from heart disease can be avoided with early detection and lifestyle modifications.

The black tie James Bond-themed event on September 28th is focused on "Targeting Heart Disease" and will highlight which actions can be taken to reduce the risk of heart disease with a core message: "LEARN. DETECT. PREVENT." The mission of World Heart Day will be presented by His Highness, Sheik Khalid Bin Jabor Al Thani in partnership with corporate sponsor Aviir, Inc. GUARDaHEART will be presenting three prestigious honors at the event: the National Heart Award, International Heart Award, and the American Hero Award.  An elite Honorary Committee includes:

Physicians: His Highness, Sheik Khalid Bin Jabor Al Thani, MD, Dr. Douglas Harrington (USC Keck School of Medicine), Dr. Nathan Wong (UCI Director, Heart Disease Prevention Program), Dr. Shaista Malik (UCI Assistant Professor of Cardiology), and Dr. Rico Simonini (Cardiologist, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center).

Dignitaries: Assemblyman Donald Wagner, Assemblywoman Diane Harkey, and Assemblyman Travis Allen.

Celebrities: Actors Kevin Sorbo and Eric Roberts.

Attendees will enjoy live entertainment, shaken, not stirred cocktails, delectable cuisine, and a silent auction. Proceeds from the event go to providing education, detection, and prevention resources for the global community including  members of the military, first responders, and low-income families.

The Orange County event location will be disclosed by invitation-only.  For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.GUARDaHEART.org and click on "Events."
