‘Affair of the Heart’: Health in Style

The Marriott Marquis ballroom was resplendent in red on Feb. 4 as nearly 900 attendees gathered for “An Affair of the Heart,” the 72nd luncheon and show of spring fashions from Bloomingdale’s Chevy Chase. The event — co-chaired by Gita Marin Joyce and Adriana Gluski and emceed by Alison Starling — supports the work of the Women’s Board of the American Heart Association, Greater Washington Region. Net proceeds go directly toward research grants to treat and prevent heart disease. Grant recipients were introduced by Angie Marriott, chair of the Women’s Board. American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown again came from Texas and spoke of recent efforts to combat vaping.
