CTMC will close out month-long heart health celebration with 'Fashion from the Heart' event Feb. 26
SAN MARCOS, TEXAS – So far, Central Texas Medical Center’s (CTMC) February heart health celebration has encouraged better cardiovascular choices by hosting a heart-healthy cooking demo, sponsoring the Gear Up 10-Mile Run, offering free diabetes glucose checks, putting on the CTMC Senior Dance and much more.

The 2014 heart health promotion will close out with the one-of-a-kind ‘Fashion from the Heart’ fashion show benefitting women’s cardiac services at CTMC on Feb. 26 from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m. Embassy Suites Hotel, Spa and Conference Center in San Marcos is hosting and sponsoring the event. Other sponsors include Texas State Optical and Horizon Bay San Marcos-Brooksdale Senior Living.

‘Fashion from the Heart’ will consist of two fashion shows, the first of which will feature the following local women as models:

• Ela Anderson
• Jackie Arredondo
• Sue Diegelman
• Molly Ann Garcia
• Debbie Harvey
• Gloria Ingram
• Celena McGuill
• Dr. Debbie Thorne

Texas State’s FashioNation group will conclude the event with a special fashion finale featuring a variety of runway models from the student organization itself. Both fashion presentations will give a sneak peek into spring trends from Banana Republic, Elie Tahari, Tommy Bahama Langford Market and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH.

In addition, ‘Fashion from the Heart’ will provide a heart healthy lunch, a silent auction, goodie bags for all attendees and a talk on heart-strengthening tips from Dr. Faisal Syed of Austin Heart.

“Cardiovascular disease is a major health concern in the entire country, and Central Texas is no exception,” said Clay DeStefano, CTMC executive director of the CTMC Foundation. “CTMC has been expanding its specialty cardiac services in recent years and hopes the community find this event as a fun way to support this cause.”

Tickets to this must-see event cost $25 and can be purchased by calling Embassy Suites directly at (512) 805-5321.
