Special to Iredell Free News

In an effort to support the highest quality of cardiovascular care for the community, the Iredell Health Foundation will host its first annual Heart of Jazz this fall to benefit the Cardiac & Vascular Care Fund at Iredell Health System.

The Heart of Jazz will take place from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 13, at The Venues at Langtree in Mooresville.

The event will feature live musical performances from Dr. Ray Georgeson, cardiologist, followed by Mo Money, a five-piece jazz band comprised of the nation’s top studio musicians, songwriters, and producers — all of whom have national performance and recording credits.

The Heart of Jazz will also feature a silent auction, a cash bar, hors d’oeuvres, and feature a complimentary signature drink.

“This will be an evening of jazz, fun, and spirits to support our patient assistance program and enhance cardiovascular services at Iredell Health System,” said Jen Balog, executive director of the Iredell Health Foundation. “Our ultimate goal is to keep the most advanced cardiac and vascular care right here in our community. This annual event will help us to accomplish this.”

Proceeds from the Heart of Jazz support the purchase of new cardiovascular equipment, provide patient assistance, and expand cardiovascular service offerings for the community.
