Cincy Chic is celebrating American Heart Health Awareness month in style at our fifth annual “Lady in Red” event on February 9, held at Macy’s Fountain Place from 6-9 p.m. The event requires a red cocktail dress to be worn at their fashionable fundraiser for the American Heart Association. What a great cause to bring that red dress out and let it shine!

Any style cocktail dress is acceptable from a fun flare, sexy sequin, chic sheer, lacy love, mix and match to cute and cozy and much more, as long as it’s ravishing red! Glam it up with that red nail polish, red lipstick, jewelry, and a fun red oversized tote or clutch. Don’t forget about those fashionable feet, any heel looks great from a short and cute kitten heel, a thin and high stiletto, chunky pumps or a great looking wedge. Don’t have red heels? Don’t worry, let that red dress stand out and add some nude or black heels.  You’ll be red hot on that red carpet!

All proceeds from the fundraising activities benefit the American Heart Association “Go Red for Women” campaign.

In honor of American Heart Month and National Wear Red Day (Feb.1), customers wearing anything red – from an entire ensemble, to lipstick, to the signature Red Dress pin, will receive a 20% or 10% discount on a wide assortment of merchandise at Macy’s stores nationwide; as part of the Wear Red Sale happening Wednesday, January 30 through Sunday, February 3. However, even without wearing red, customers can support Go Red For Women by purchasing the official Go Red For Women red dress pin for $2 at any Macy’s store and receive the same discounts. All pin sales directly benefit the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement.

Also, there are three red dresses you can purchase that give 20% of the purchase to Go Red For Women. They’re pictured below and here’s their availability in local stores:

  • The Ellen Tracy dress is available at Kenwood 
  • The Kensie dress is available at Kenwood at Tri-County

Cincy Chic Celebrates Heart Health Awareness Month with “Lady in Red” Event

Online women’s publication holds fashionable fundraiser for heart health awareness

Cincy Chic is painting the town red in the name of heart health on February 9! The online women’s publication is teaming up with the American Heart Association for its fifth annual “Lady in Red” event, which promises record-breaking attendance.

This fashionable fundraiser, which will attract 700-1000 attendees, will be held at Macy’s Fountain Place from 6-9 p.m. on February 9. Guests will celebrate heart health in red cocktail attire, while enjoying red cocktails, light bites, and several fun-filled fundraising activities. There will also be a “Go-Red”-inspired fashion show by Macy’s and Mi Salon Spa.

“As the Go Red For Women campaign enters its 10th year, the movement has made huge strides in the health of women across the country,” says Lori Fovel of the Go Red For Women campaign. “In fact, statistics show that women who joined the Go Red movement, made at least one positive change in their health–whether it be losing weight, increasing their exercise, or quitting smoking. Locally, Greater Cincinnati is showing the same positive results, thanks to great supporters like Cincy Chic. Through annual events like Lady in Red, we are able to reach a large demographic of women to raise awareness that heart disease is the number one killer of women.”

“Heart disease is the number one killer of American women—but it doesn’t have to be,” says Amy Scalia, publisher of Cincy Chic. “As a women’s publication, we’re leveraging our community of 22,000 local ladies to learn about heart health awareness at a fun and fashionable affair.”

Tickets for this event are $10 per person, and includes two drink tickets, complimentary swag bag, and a 20% discount at Macy’s. All proceeds from the fundraising activities and silent auction will benefit the American Heart Association “Go Red for Women” campaign.  Learn more, RSVP and donate at cincychic.com/events.
