It was a sea of red today at the Landfall Country Club. The ladies were dressed up for the annual Red Dress Luncheon to raise money for heart disease. Heart disease is the number one cause of death among women.

Donations help fund awareness pamphlets and cholesterol screenings through New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s Coastal Care Van, which travels across the county to perform cholesterol tests to help prevent the disease.

Tracey Kellogg of New Hanover County Medical Center Foundation said, “So much of this can be prevented by making heart healthy choices. That’s what our outreach program is all about, is to help women be educated about one their own risks.”

Of those screened on the Coastal Care Van in New Hanover County last year, nearly 200 women were flagged as at risk for heart disease.
