The Heart and Soul Red Dress Dinner and Seminar brings a majority of minority and low income women ages 18 and over out for a night of learning about heart health in a relaxed and culturally competent setting. Through inspirational and educational presentations, attendees are motivated to make better lifestyle choices which will lead to the prevention of heart disease. Attendees were not required to wear a red dress, but instead were encouraged to wear something red – a scarf, a blouse, or anything red, but there was no barrier to admittance related to clothing. They all enter on a red carpet, and are invited to be pampered with complimentary hair and make-up consultations, chair-side massages and glamorous photos by professional photographers, a heart healthy gourmet meal and entertainment that includes an international fashion show in which the models wear traditional clothing representing their birth nations or ethnic heritage. The first ever Heart and Soul Red Dress Event at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha brought 400 women together. In 2006, the 2nd Annual Heart and Soul Red Dress Event were held with 400 women, 600 in 2007 and in 2008, almost 700 women attended.
