Cold weather and bad roads didn’t damper the spirits of party goers at the 7th annual Simply Red Gala in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Linda Corrente organized the event at the John D. Bradley Centre in Chatham and says it’s about raising money and awareness.
“To me this is really personal because it’s in my family,” says Corrente. “All of my grandparents passed away from either a stroke or a heart attack. My dad is here tonight, he’s a heart attack survivor. My mom has heart disease so this is personal to me.”
In it’s first six years the Simply Red Gala has raised $361,780 within Chatham-Kent.
