Capital Region Heart Ball Dazzles at Hall of Springs
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Well over 400 guests came to the Hall of Springs on Saturday, March 2, for the 36th Annual Capital Region Heart Ball.
The event’s chair this year was Michael Finegan, president of acute care at St. Peter’s Health Partners. He stated “The Heart Ball is an incredible event, and is very successful in raising awareness in the Capital Region and beyond about the risks of cardiovascular disease. “What excited me most about serving as chair was the opportunity to honor eight cardiac nurses (see above,) whose work is so critical, and who are tireless in their dedication to saving lives and promoting positive patient outcomes. Thanks also to the American Heart Association, which does tremendous work that aligns seamlessly with the mission of St. Peter’s Health Partners. I am also proud to be able to help honor Albany County District Attorney David Soares. His story of surviving cardiac disease is inspiring and educational for all of us. We are proud to have cared for him at St. Peter’s Hospital.”
