The Guest List:
NORTHWEST -- Over a hundred of Washington’s ‘heartiest’ united in a sea of red, crimson, and burgundy on Thursday evening, for the American Heart Association’s (AHA) third annual Pain the Town Red celebration.

Organized by PULSE, the organization’s D.C. subgroup for the city’s burgeoning young professional workforce, the event supported the AHA’s childhood obesity initiative known as Recess!.

With partners, including the likes of CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, the Washington Redskins, and the DC Parks and Recreation Department, Recess! empowers kids ages 5-18 inside the District’s Wards 5-8 to become peer leaders for healthy eating and physical activity.

And helping lead by example, many of the attendees who turned-out to last night’s red-tinged bash happily got their healthy hearts pounding on the dance floor, thanks to the beats of DJ Vishal.

Between spins and twirls, guests were treated to a variety of passed bites and beverage options, including heart-friendly bags of popchips!, chilled bottles of Peroni, and tall cocktails mixed with Smooth Ambler Spirits.

All throughout the event, a competitive silent auction table drew friendly furtive glances, as bidders playfully engaged in a spirited test of gamesmanship to walk away with plenty of prized swag, including an autographed Tony Hawk skateboard, a signed jersey from NBA All Star Dwyane Wade, and dinner for two at top-rated Adour at the St. Regis or Proof.

And judging by the smiles on everyone’s faces as they left Meridian House bound for the official after party at Policy, the PULSE of the AHA continues to be strong.
